Super Easy Ground Beef & Rice Casserole

So easy, you won t believe it!
So I needed something that didn t require too much work time, cook time didn t matter. Found an easy recipe buried in some website, but it needed a couple modifications to give it some flavor. I think next time I will cut the onion down, and add some green pepper also. Also some heat would be nice, but my wife liked it like this.
