      > I like to use a can of chili with no beans to the rice.  My family

      loves it.  You can also use chili with beans with rice.  First I

      brown 1lb of ground beef untl the meat is brown, drain the fat, then

      add the can of chili with or without beans.  Add it to the rice after

      the rice is cooked or in the same pot while the rice is cooking. 

      Either way, its good.  My husband loves cheese so when I serve the

      chili and rice on a platter, he adds cheddar cheese.  He can’t get

      enought of it.

      tostada shell top with rice, chili, minced onion and cheese and bake

      it until the cheese melted, wow am I now have a craving. Thanks for

      reminding me,
