In a separate pan, brown and drain the ground beef, add the celery and allow to cook for another 1-2 minutes. Stir in the crushed tomatoes, chili powder and cayenne. Then gently stir in the rice and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Place the mixture into a 9 or 10 inch square pan and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup cheese on top.

    I used a 14 oz package of Gimmebean "ground sausage" (meatless) instead of the ground beef, used a minced garlic clove instead of the garlic salt, and left out the cayenne (cooking with kids in mind). It was yummy and the kids ate it, but I was disapointed with the next-day leftovers. My advice - eat it all up.

    Good stuff. I modified the recipe to have no meat and no baking (who wants to cook something twice?) So I added everything for the initial stage plus the tomatoes and other spices and boiled then simmered. This was good. Enjoy!
