Spanish Rice Bake From allrecipes.com
1 pkg of ground turkey (approx. 1 lb)
¾ cup brown rice
1 14.5 oz can of no salt added diced tomatoes
1 ½ cup water
½ cup chopped onion
¼ cup chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons of chili powder
½ teaspoon of cumin
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
½ – 1 cup cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons cilantro
Brown the ground turkey, either in a frying pan, or in a medium sized pot. (I added 2 additional tablespoons of chili powder to the meat while it was cooking)
If you browned the ground turkey in a frying pan, add it to a medium sized pot along with the onion, pepper, water, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, Worcestershire sauce,, brown sugar, and rice.
Bring to a slow boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer, untouched, for 45 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 2 qt. dish. When rice is cooked, transfer to baking dish, top with cheese, and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Allow to cool. Garnish with cilantro, and top with sour cream and/or salsa if desired.
