Yucatano Deliciosa

This was a favorite on the mission.  Sister Chapman would sometimes make it when she and President would have the missionaries over to the mission home for some good home-cooking.  It is so easy and you can multiply it to make loads!  I had forgotten about this recipe until recently and was so excited when I happened upon it again!  I made a few variations, but this one is another Sister Chapman winner.  It looks intimidating with the list of ingredients, but most of them are ones you'd already have around the house.

{What you need}
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 15oz. can crushed tomatoes
4 cups water
4 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 large onion, diced
3 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can garbanzo beans
sour cream
shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Combine all of the ingredients in a pot except the beef, onion, and 3 cans of beans.  Simmer with lid on for 20 minutes.  While that is cooking, brown the ground beef and onions.  Add the beans the last five minutes of simmer time.  When the rice is cooked add the beef and onion to the pot.  Serve hot on chips with sour cream and cheese.

Other topping ideas:
chopped tomatoes
chopped green onions
chopped black olives
