Crockpot Mexican Rice Casserole

This is a favorite in our home, and makes for a great easy meal with great leftovers.

1 lb hamburger
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
8oz can of tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
1 package of taco seasoning
1 TBSP chili powder
1 cup instant rice, uncooked
1 cup shredded cheese

Brown the hamburger and onions in a pan. While that cooks chop up the bell pepper and prepare the kidney beans and tomatoes. Combine all ingredients in crockpot, except rice and cheese. Cook on Low for 8 hours. Stir in rice, cover and cook until tender (about 20-30 minutes). Sprinkle cheese on top. Can be served with tortilla chips or eaten alone.
