Mom's Texas Hash

GPB's 101 Cozy Casseroles (submitted by: Ginger O'Connell, Hazel Park, MI)


1lb ground beef

2 onions, sliced

1 green pepper, shopped

8-oz can stewed tomatoes* (I used Fire-Roasted tomatoes)

1/2 to 1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt


Brown beef, onions and green pepper in a skillet over medium heat; drain. Stir in tomatoes with juice and seasonings. Cook over medium heat until warmed through, about 8 minutes; spoon into an ungreased one-quart casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Serves 4.


*Note: I had a little issue with this recipe. I could not find a 8-oz can of stewed tomatoes. I contacted Gooseberry Patch and they went back to Ginger's original submission which does state 8-oz can stewed tomatoes. It is possible that there is a regional brand that comes in that size that isn't available in my part of the country. The can I bought was 14.5-oz. I added ONE cup of stewed tomatoes and then decided to go ahead and use the entire can. In my opinion, it was perfect.
