Funny how the memory of a dish can stick with you for decades. When I was
a child, my mother had a very limited food budget. It was during World War
II and she made this dish often. I liked it, so l thought she was cooking
this just to be nice to us. Now I realize that it is a great way to feed 4
people on 1/2 pound of hamburger. I don't make the dish often anymore but I
still think about it now and then. This dish will not win any cooking
contests but it will tickle your children . . . and perhaps give them some
good memories.

Heat a 2-quart Dutch oven and add the oil, hamburger, and onions. Saut”š

excess fat from pan and add the green pepper and chili powder. Saut”š an
additional 5 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Cover the pan and cook over low heat for 25 minutes, or until the rice is

Mom used to serve this with canned corn and white bread. I know you can
