Texas Beef Skillet / Cheesy Chips and Beans

This recipe is my Mom’s. I grew up eating this and it was one of my favorite meals. It brings so much comfort and it’s so healthy and cheap to make. Who knew growing up that my mom could cook such great tasting, healthy meals on a budget? I never knew then, but I’m happy to know now! The only modification I make is that I don’t use peppers (Mom would use 3 Tbs chopped green pepper), and I bump up the chips and cheese.

Ingredients:

1 lb. Ground Beef
3/4 c Chopped Onion
16 oz. can Diced Tomatoes, with liquid
15 oz. can Kidney Beans, with liquid
1/2 c Water
1/2 c Rice, uncooked
1 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
1 c Shredded Cheese
Chips, crushed

Instructions:

In a high sided large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain off fat. Stir in tomatoes, with liquid; kidney beans, with liquid; water; rice; chili powder; and garlic salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer covered 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Top with cheese. Cover and heat 3 minutes. Sprinkle chips around edge.
