texas Beef casserole

The first casserole my mom ever made was Texas Hash from her mom's Betty Crocker cookbook.

 

Texas Beef casserole is our take on the old recipe. We add the green pepper raw to make sure it retains it sweet flavor.

It's​ loaded with onions and spiced with chili powder. Add in lean ground beef, tomatoes and rice and you have a quick and easy last minute dinner.
