Family Recipe Friday: Spanish Rice

My mom contributed another recipe this week: Spanish Rice.

"One of Bonnie Wright's favorite recipes that I serve to my family.   It's a good way to stretch a pound of hamburger.   Jason and Weldon like this recipe.   It's similar to a stuffed pepper except you don't get as much green pepper to eat.   I serve it with corn and/or cornbread and simple dessert."

    1/2-1 pound ground beef                                        
    1 medium onions, chopped                                       
    1/2 green pepper, chopped                                      
    1/4 cup oils                                                   
    1 1/2 cups minute rice, uncooked                               
    1 8-ounce can tomato sauce                                     
    1 8-ounce can water                                            
    2 tablespoons sugar                                            
    Chili powder to taste                                          
    1/2 teaspoon salt                                              
    1/4 teaspoon pepper                   

Cook ground beef, onion, and green pepper in oil until meat is not longer pink.  Add rice and cook until brown.   Drain grease if necessary.   Add remaining ingredients.   Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
