Spanish Style Rice-A-Roni

Do you like Rice-A-Roni? Try my family recipe for it, "Spanish style" with ground beef. I like it, because it's inexpensive to make, and, simply, because it tastes good. Eat it with some type of dinner rolls. My son and I enjoy it with buttered crescent rolls. You can get frozen crescent rolls, and brush or rub margarine or butter on top.


  • 1 box Rice-A-Roni, Spanish style
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (approx. 15 oz)
  • crushed red pepper (season to your taste)


Cook the Rice-A-Roni according to the directions on the box. By all means, add the optional diced tomatoes. Then brown the ground beef and add it to the Rice-A-Roni. Add as much crushed red pepper as you like, bring it all to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.

Servings: Approximately 8, with 1 of each--#1-#3
