It's a little spicy and a little cheesy too...not your average cabbage dish, that's for sure!
1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (10 oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp each white, black and cayenne pepper
4 to 6 drops hot pepper sauce (more if you dare!)
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Colby cheese
In a skillet, cook the beef, green pepper, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomatoes, tomato sauce, rice and seasonings.
Spread into an ungreased 13-in x 9-in baking dish. Top with the cabbage and cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for 65-75 minutes or until the rice is tender.
