The first days of May bring tulips and daffodils. It also brings Cinco de Mayo! On the fifth day of May it has become a tradition with me to prepare Spanish Rice for dinner. It surely is a change of pace to make dinner on my stove top rather than use the outdoor grill. A can of Tomatoes, Tomato Sauce & Rice will be located easily tomorrow. Sliced Peppers will be defrosted and the Ground Beef will be purchased.
The Rice is cooked before using. This is an easy delicious dinner!
1 lb. Ground Beef, browned
1 can (15 oz.) Tomato Sauce
1 can (15 - 20 oz.) Tomatoes - whole or pieces, drained
1 Green Pepper - cut into strips (I use defrosted slices.)
2 Cups cooked Rice
1/4 tsp. Oregano
1/4 tsp. Basil
1 Tablespoon chopped Parsley
- Brown 1 lb. Ground Beef.
- While browning Beef, combine Tomato Sauce, Tomatoes and cut/ or defrosted Green Pepper in large pot and simmer.
- Add browned Beef and stir.
- Add in cooked Rice, Oregano, Basil and Parsley. Stir well and simmer 30 minutes.
- Stir occasionally while simmering.
