Mom's Spanish Rice

One of our favorite slam-together suppers is my mom's recipe for Spanish Rice.

Brown 1 lb (more or less) ground beef or turkey. Chop a medium onion and add to beef.



  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • A couple of celery stalks, chopped
  • A green pepper, chopped (I have been chopping and freezing mine from the garden, here, lately)
  • A large can of crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Simmer until the vegetables are nice and tender and add 2-3 cups COLD cooked rice and heat to simmer stage. Hot rice just goes to mush and just isn't very nice.

This serves 4-6 hungry people with a salad and some bread and butter.
