Tasty Tuesday: Monterey Beef Rice Skillet

I love making this dish on nights when I am pushed for time and feel like I barely can squeeze in making dinner. Not only is this recipe simple and quick, it also uses basic ingredients nearly everyone always has on hand, and it is tasty besides.

Monterey Beef Rice Skillet
1 lb. ground beef
1 c. dry rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
3 oz. cream cheese
15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 tsp. chili powder

Brown beef in 10 inch skillet; drain. Stir in rice, water, onion and salt. Cover and simmer 25 minutes or till water is absorbed. Stir in cheese, tomato sauce and chili powder. Cover and heat through.
