Bite Back Casserole

2 cups of rice, uncooked

1 lb. Hamburger

1/3 cup of onions

Jalapenos to taste

1 tbs chili powder

¼ tsp ground cumin

1 can spicy chopped tomatoes

¼ cup ketchup

1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

1 tbs beef bullion powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cook the rice per packaging instructions.

Brown the hamburger. As it is browning, add the onions, jalapenos, chili powder, cumin, and beef bullion powder.

As soon as the hamburger is browned, add the tomatoes. Continue to cook for 2 minutes.

Place the rice in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Top with the meat (undrained). Pour the ketchup over the meat. It should be a very thin topping. Top with the cheese.

Place in the oven uncovered for twenty minutes or until the cheese turns dark brown.
