Spicy Beef Stove-Top Casserole

Spicy Beef Stove-Top Casserole from Cook-a-Palooza

Makes: 4 Servings

Time to Prepare: 5 minutes

Time to Cook: 25 to 30 minutes


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb. (16 oz.) lean ground beef
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can (127 ml / 4 oz.) chopped green chilies
  • 1 cup chopped roasted red peppers (from a jar)
  • 1 cup long-grain rice
  • 2½ cups beef broth
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • shredded cheese (optional)

HOW TO MAKE

In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook until softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and beef. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Cook until meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain excess fat.


Add in green chilies, red peppers and rice. Stir well to mix. Add broth and ketchup. Stir again. Bring to a boil, cover with lid and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice is tender and the liquid is almost entirely absorbed, about 15 to 20 minutes.


Remove from heat. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
