Why I Love This Recipe

I found this recipe on Allrecipes, and it was submitted by Becky Paxton of Afton, Iowa. This skillet dinner will definately keep you warm on a cold Fall or Winter day. The only changes I made was that instead of 1/2 tsp. of salt, I used ground cumin; and I didn't actually measure out the corn chips and cheese; I used about 3 handfuls of crushed corn chips, and about 1 heaping handful of cheese. I also used extra tomatoes. But other than those minor things, everything's the same.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 lb. ground beef
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 (16 oz.) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 cup uncooked instant rice
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp. chopped green pepper
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. salt*
1 cup corn chips*
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese*


In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until no longer pink and drain.

Add beans, tomatoes, rice, water, green pepper, and seasonings; mix well and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove from heat; sprinkle with corn chips and cheese; cover and let stand for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
