Mother's Spanish Rice with Ground Beef

This is my Mother's recipe for Spanish Rice. I have never found a recipe this good. I think it is the milk which is unusual in this dish that makes the difference.



  • 2 cups canned tomatoes
  • 2/3 cups of long cooking rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 1 lb. of hamburger
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. Garlic powder


Bring the tomatoes, rice and water to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 30 minutes until rice is tender.

Add the 2/3 cup of milk to the tomato/rice mixture. Stir well. Set aside.

Saute green peppers and onions in a little fat until tender abt 15 to 20 minutes.

Saute the ground beef and spices until done about 10 to 15 minutes.

Combine the green pepper/onion mixture and the hamburger. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add to the tomato/rice mixture, bring to heat stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve.

Servings: 6 to 8
