    1 1/2 pounds extra lean (96 percent) ground beef
    1 rib celery, diced
    2 cups uncooked instant brown rice
    2 packets no-salt beef bouillon
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 14.5-ounce can no-salt stewed tomatoes
    1 16-ounce can no-salt tomato sauce
    1 6-ounce can no-salt tomato paste
    2 cups water
    3/4 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 small green bell pepper, diced


    1. In a small skillet, fry bacon. Place on paper towels to drain extra fat. Set aside to cool.
    2. In a large skillet, cook onions and ground beef until meat is browned. Drain off fat.
    3. Crumble cooled bacon and add to meat mixture with remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. (If rice is too thick, add water.)
    4. Serve warm.
