~ Brown or White Rice
~ Spaghetti Sauce
~ Bell Pepper
~ Taco Seasoning
~ Garlic or Garlic Powder~ Cumin
I don't really go by any measurements of the items above, because I just go by taste and I've made it so many times now. For the Hamburger, I get a small quantity of it, not the big one. And I use that Whole dish of it.
I use about 2 to 3 cups of rice and I boil it in the microwave till it's nice and soft.You want to fill the bowl with water about two inches above the rice. I normally start the rice first since it takes the longest. After the rice is about half way done, I brown the Hamburger, strain out the grease,Cut up some onion and brown it the rest of the way to cook out the onion. I'm not a fan of crunching into an onion. I add about half a packet of Taco Seasoning to it, and A little bit of Cumin and Garlic Powder. However much you like. My mom's recipe calls for Celery, But I never put it in mine.
Once the rice is done. Add the rice to the pot of Hamburger meat. Then add in a can of Spaghetti sauce. ( I will show you pictures at the bottom of this post that has what brands of things I use ) Sometimes if that one big can of spaghetti sauce doesn't really look like enough I put a little water in the can and swish it around to make some more :) Then you will cut up the olives, I use one can ( You can add as much as you like ) And stir it all together .. and WALA!
Here are my snapshots of last night !
After mixing it all together!
We have always eaten this meal with Chips instead of a fork :) So yummy !!
Ben got a great idea to put it in a burrito shell. So I went and heated one up in the Microwave for him.
