If you want a quick, easy, one pan dinner this should be it. I found this recipe ages ago and it is still regularly requested and enjoyed by my family and guest. It has wonderful flavor and appeals to the eye as well.
Brown ground beef, chopped onion and diced green peppers.
Add chili powder, dried mustard, corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce and water, but don't add the rice quite yet! Bring this mixture to a boil and then add your rice. Reduce heat to low, cover and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. The rice should be cooked tender and it will have absorbed the water and sauce -- if not, recover and give it a few more minutes on low.
Lightly stir everything together and then sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the top.
