Seeking comfort food

When the holiday season starts to explode, my eating habits tend to implode. Homemade cookies at work, chocolate goodies at home, candy, retirement cake, etc. I find myself longing for something wholesome and satisfying - at least for dinner. This recipe is my mom's. It is from my babysitter, Gladys, when we lived in Little Rock, Ark. My sister and I still love this dish, and I have brought it to potlucks, taken it to sick friend's families, and shared it with friends and relatives. It's simple and uses ingredients you probably don't have to run to the store for. What dishes do you go to for comfort during chaos?

Texas Hash

1 pound ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

1 large green pepper, chopped

1 teaspoon salt

2 cans tomatoes, undrained

1/2 cup rice, uncooked

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Saute pepper and onion in some oil. Add meat and brown. Drain. Add remaining ingredients and bake 1 hour at 325 degrees in a covered casserole dish.
