We’ve all heard of Spanish rice, but this recipe is for Texas Rice! It’s similar, but with that inexplicable Texas touch!

Ingredients: Individual bottle of peach ghost pepper hot sauce from Texas Pepper Jelly

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked rice, white or brown (I use brown)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 teaspoons Ghost Pepper Peach Hot Sauce
  • 1 12-ounce jar of salsa
  • 1 large tomato, chopped (can substitute one 14 1/2 ounce can, chopped and drained)

What to do:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add beef, onion, and green pepper. Cook until meat is lightly browned. Drain liquid thoroughly. Stir in remaining ingredients. Reduce hat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or so, until the rice is tender.

Add a couple of breadsticks and a small tossed salad, and this is one of our favorite dinners.

Yum yum eat ’em up.
