A friend gave me this recipe and said I could share it on here! I can't wait to try it.
SPANISH RICE CASSEROLE
1 cup rice
...1 lb. hamburger
1 onion size of egg
2 cups diced celery
2 tsp barbecue spice mix
1 can tomato sauce (no. 303 can)
1 green pepper
Rice in boiling water, bring to boil, set aside. DO NOT STIR RICE, keep well covered
for an hour. Saute onion, celery and green pepper till done or clear. Brown meat in
separate pan, then mix together. Add tomato sauce and simmer till rice is done. Mix all together and bake one hour in slow oven. (325 degrees).
Be sure to cook the rice until done. Sometimes setting it aside as stated, it does not get cooked through so check to be sure.
We always make a double or triple batch as this heats up well for left overs or lunches. Enjoy!
