Spice It Up

I made this for my daycare kids lunch and they loved it!! I thought it was great! Very easy and fast. Changes I made: Used long grain white rice (not instant), half an onion, 2 red mini sweet bell peppers, added 1 clove garlic chopped, 1 can diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, grated cheddar cheese on top. This is a meal that my husband will love so I plan on making it again.

We just got done eating this so I thought I'd write a quick review. This was pretty good with the changes I made based on other reviews. I added a large clove of garlic, minced, a can of drained black beans, and a large red pepper instead of green. I used the full 2 tablespoons of chili powder, and did NOT drain the diced tomatoes. Maybe the person who said the result was soupy didn't drain the grease out after browning the ground beef with the peppers and onions. I used plenty of salt and pepper but still think next time I make it I will add some worchestershire sauce. Don't get me wrong, it was more then edible; my son had 2 helpings! It just could have used a touch more zip. Thanks for a good base recipe...an update 11/12/08: If you are using a good brand of chili powder, you may want to cut back to one tablespoon...the first few times I made this I used "bargain" chili powder (.99)and 2 tablespoons was fine...this last time I used McCormick's and 2 tablespoons made it a little too spicy for us. Oh, also, I used muenster cheese, because that's what I had, now THAT was good.


This was great! We all loved it. I doubled the bell pepper, used brown rice instead of instant white and shredded cheddar instead of processed American, and I also added Tabasco and Worcestershire for some spice. Definitely a keeper at our house.
