Here's a quick and tasty main dish. Skip adding the lettuce to the dish and make a salad instead and you have a complete meal.
1 lb. g. beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 can ( 14 oz. ) tomatoes
2 tsp. instant beef bouillon
2 tsp. chili powder or to taste
1 1/2 c. cooked rice
1 c. shredded lettuce
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Brown beef and onion in 10'' skillet; drain off fat. Add tomatoes, including liquid, bouillon (2 beef bouillon cubes, crushed, may be used ) and chili powder. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve bouillon, and to break up tomatoes. Stir in cooked rice. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 5 min. top with lettuce and cheese before serving.
