Kittencal's Mexi Ground Beef and Rice image

This is a delicious tomato based rice dish, spicy pork sausage meat may be replaced for the ground beef which is what I prefer to use, make this as spicy as you like by adjusting the chili flakes, the olives may be omitted I strongly suggest to add them in you could substitute 3/4 cup frozen peas, this recipe was developed using converted rice I can't promise the same results using another kind of rice

Kittencal's Spicy Mexi Sausage and Rice Casserole image

Substituting ground beef for the spicy Italian sausages will not be as good, Jimmy Dean's Spicy Pork Sausage may be used in place of the spicy Italian sausages --- although I have listed black beans red kidney beans also work well or you may use what you like, or if you are not a lover of beans you may omit, can also add in a 4-ounce can green chilies, I use lots of garlic for this you may reduce amount if desired
