  • 1-1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
  • 1/2 yellow and red bell pepper
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • 4 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 cup Spiceitup! Jalapeño Ketchup

  • 2 1/2 cups instant rice
  • 4-8 cups water, depending on preference
  • 1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes and green chilies

In large cooking pot brown ground beef and chop fine. Drain grease or use some folded paper towels to soak up grease and dispose. Food process onion and bell peppers and add to the cooking hamburger, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add dry spices and combine thoroughly while cooking. This is great aroma therapy! After 2 minutes begin adding tomato sauce, paste and diced tomatoes and mild Spiceitup! Jalapeño Ketchup. Add water, one cup at a time, and dissolve tomato paste. Add rice, bring to a boil, turn burner on low and let simmer 30 minutes. Add water if it's too thick or add rice if it's too thin. Stir every 3-5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with corn chips, crackers, melba toast, toasted halves of croissant rolls or whatever thrills your heart. Enjoy with some pickles and olives.
