Growing up in Wisconsin, this was one of my favorite meals. It’s just good comfort food.

After I was out on my own, I continued to make it from time to time. It’s been many years since I last made this so it was wonderful to have all the memories come flooding back as I was posting this recipe.

This recipe is part of the 1998 collection. Again, thank you, Tracy, for doing this for our family.


  • 1-1/2 pounds ground round
  • 1 or 2 green peppers – more is better in my opinion
  • 1 or 2 medium onions – ditto from above
  • 1 10oz can tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • 2 cups water
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Brown ground round until just about done. Add the coarsely chopped green peppers and onions. Cook so vegetables are slightly done.
  2. Add soup mixed with water and rice. Season with chili powder and salt and pepper.
  3. Simmer until done approximately one hour.

According to Tracy, this meal is only complete with a slice of white bread covered with a generous spreading of Blue Bonnet margarine.
