Spanish Rice

With this heat hanging on
I hate using the oven
or steaming up the kitchen.
And seeing how I've made
sandwiches and salads
for the past week or two
we were getting hungry for a
'hot' meal.
So I made some homemade
Spanish Rice
a fast and easy stove-top meal!

I browned ground beef then added
chopped onions, celery, green
 and red peppers.
Add a can of tomato sauce,
diced tomatoes and mushrooms.
Add dry rice and water per servings desired.
Season as desired.

(I used paprika, chili pepper,
cayenne pepper, onion powder,
a dash of salt and pepper,
basil and oragano.)

Bring to a boil, stir, then cover
and set on simmer for 15 minutes
without peeking.

As always, you can make a feller hungry when he has just eaten. The spanish rice looks and almost smells great.
It sounds tasty. Sherry says they all can cook (referring to you and your sisters!!)

Looks good! I know what you mean about sandwiches/salads...you can only eat so many! I bet your family enjoyed your hot meal.

the 'without peeking' part is the hardest part of waiting for this meal. Looks as great as anything else I've had at your table...so what time are leftovers? I love it cold too!

Your rice looks delicious, but I have never heard of adding ground beef to Spanish Rice.

Now that looks delicious, thanks Cher. I don't want to turn the oven on either.
