Texas Hash

I love making casseroles because for the 2 of us it means many meals. We usually cut the leftovers into single serve portions, put them in plastic storage containers and freeze them to eat later. This casserole is great for that because it reheats great and still tastes amazing. It gives us healthy meals to take to work for lunch.We have made this casserole many times and it always tastes great and is pretty easy to make as well.

Texas Hash
  • 1 to 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 3 large onions, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain rice
  • t teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 to 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole dish
  3. Brown beef and onions in a large skillet over medium-high heat
  4. When onions are translucent, add garlic and green pepper; cook until green pepper is softened
  5. Remove from heat; stir in remaining ingredients
  6.  Transfer mixture to the casserole dish; cover with foil or a lid and bake for 45 mins. Remove cover and bake 15 mins. longer. (Rob likes to cover the casserole with shredded sharp cheddar cheese once the cover is removed. This is optional and wasn't part of the original recipe.)
