"This is a different take on traditional New Orleans red beans and rice. This recipe has been a family favorite for years, created by my grandmother. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family and friends have."

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Stir in the garlic, onion, and green bell pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 7 minutes. Pour in the tomatoes, and simmer until the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes.
  3. Once the liquid from the tomatoes has been absorbed, stir in the kidney beans, rice, and water. Season with the chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a 9x13-inch baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the rice has absorbed the liquid and is tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

My family loves this recipe. I have been making a similar version for years. The only difference in my recipe is after the casserole has baked, I add cheddar cheese and sliced green olives to th...

This was O.K. but nothing special. It needs some other spice but I'm not sure what. Note about prep time: It was closer to 30-35 minutes from the time I started prepping the vegetables until ...
