  1. Brown the beef, along with some onion and garlic. Add spices and cooked rice and stuff tomatoes. Top with some grated cheese and bake until bubbly.

      If only the tomatoes were "normal" size! Got a zillion of the sweet but teensy ones. Great idea tho.

        Slice the Tomatoes in half and add them for the last cple of mins and then top with cheese

      1. Stuffed green peppers, or green pepper stew.

        I have a great 2-sauces pasta dish that uses half-pound ground beef. But I would not use with rice. Let me know if you want that (long, but delicious) recipe.

        Three or Four bean casserole (what another CH calls "Cowboy beans") stovetop hotdish.

          No long recipes please -- the cowboy beans sound interesting!

        2. Wow - thanks everyone for your suggestions - they'll come in handy soon if not tomorrow!

          1. Add onion, garlic, and whatever fresh or frozen veg is on hand, for a stir-fry with soy or teriyaki sauce, serve over rice.
