Ground Beef & Rice Casserole

This dish was very easy, delicious and comforting. The fact that it's a one pot meal makes me happy (I used a large oven safe skillet). I love Casseroles.

(serves 4)
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 seeded Jalapenos (finely chopped)
1 cup water
3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pinch ground black pepper
1/4 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

I decided to blended: 2 Tomatoes, 1 large garlic clove (or use 1 (14.5 ounce) canned tomatoes)
  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-heat heat.. Stir in the onion, jalapenos, tomatoe blend, water, rice, salt, cumin, Worcesterhire sauce and black pepper.
  2. Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Transport this to a casserole dish. Press down and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  6. Top with cilantro.
** I served this with sauteed yellow squash.
