  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 1/2 cups water

  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the beef, onion, and green pepper, cooking until the meat is browned; drain liquid. Stir in remaining ingredients; reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender.
