Spanish rice with beef is one of my favorites and this one meets with my approval. Serve with a green salad and you have a complete meal.

Didn't add all of the black pepper or salt, or any of the butter. Instead i sauteed the veggies in a little of the hamburger grease. And i added a bit more rice, beef bouillon and an extra can of tomatoes (the kind with diced chili peppers). It was spicy, but a big hit!
