Cheesy Ground Beef Rice Casserole

Now that the majority of my family is dairy-free, we will miss this meal... But I wanted to share with others who do not have to be dairy free. (From

1 lbs ground beef
2 onions diced
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 small can tomato sauce
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheese
salt pepper, oregano
1 cup frozen peas

Preheat oven to 350° F
Spray a skillet with cooking spray and turn on the heat to high
Roast the onions for a few minutes.
Add ground beef and garlic, brown the ground beef completely, turn heat to medium
Spice with salt, pepper and oregano how you like it
Add rice, peas tomato sauce, 1 cup cheese and broth, let simmer for 3 minutes
Transfer everything into a casserole dish and bake for 15 minutes
Meanwhile combine the rest of the cheese with the sour cream
After 15 minutes bring the cheese/sour cream mixture on top of you casserole and bake for another 15 minutes.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
