HOT TACO RICE

Note:  This is a tasty quick, easy dish.  It is ready in around 20 minutes.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups jarred salsa (heat to suit your taste)
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 1/2 cups instant rice (Minute rice)
chopped tomatoes for garnish, if desired

Brown the beef and onion in a large skillet until the beef is no longer pink and the onion is transluscent; drain.  Add the salsa, tomato sauce, and bouillon cube to the skillet and bring mixture to a full boil.  Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.

While mixture cooks, prepare the rice according to the package directions.

To serve, place the beef mixture over the cooked rice.  Add the garnishes if desired.  Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings.
