    This was okay for us..... I found it didn't have much flavor..... I also used red, green and yellow peppers instead of just red..... This is a really quick and easy recipe that has lots of potential.... Next time I prepare it, I'll be adding lots more spices and I'll also be cooking the veggies with the rice instead of after.... The rice dried out after adding the veggies and cooking longer..... Thanks so much for sharing.... It's a great way to use ground beef....


<p>&nbsp;<br /> <br />I'm a homeschooling mother of seven, a labor doula, childbirth educator and apprenticing midwife. <br /> <br />I love to cook, it's a great creative release for me. I usually use a recipe as a jumping off point, changing it as it works for us. <br />When I post a recipe if I don't site a source you can assume it was one of my own creations which is likely to be a simple one dish kinda of thing. With a large family I'm all about easy and tasty. A recipe doesn't get posted unless the kids loved it. <br /> <br />My star ratings <br />5 stars- Loved it! the family loved it and it will be added to my main cookbook <br /> <br />4 stars- Really liked it, may make a change or two and add it to my main cookbook <br /> <br />3 stars- Like it, may make it again, but it probably won't be a regular addition <br /> <br />2 stars- it was okay, but not likely to make it again with out many changes <br /> <br />1 star- not very good, would need to make several changes for our family's taste, won't make it again. <br /> <br />I'm very honest in my reviews and whereas I don't like giving low reviews I will. I won't try a recipe unless I think my family would enjoy it and I will review it.. <br /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><a href=http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view&amp;current=tish1.jpg target=_blank><br /></a>&nbsp;</p>
