This is one of my favorite go-to foods.  Even people that don’t like cabbage love it!  I remember as a child, my mother would make this.  I hated cabbage.  I repeat, hated cabbage.  So did my sister and every other young person that I knew.  The funny thing is that we all loved this creole. 


I must also confess that though this is a “creole” but I make mine more like a soup.  Just don’t add the water and you will have this thick bowl of yumminess. 

 This creole also freezes well so make a double batch and save it for a busy night.  You could even whip up a batch of cornbread to go with it! 


1 lb. ground beef
1 lg. onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 head cabbage
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes with green chilies
8 oz velveeta cheese
1 cup milk
top with extra cheese if desired
1-4 cups of water if you want it soupy


Brown ground beef, onion, and bell pepper. 
Add cabbage, Ro-tel tomatoes, and velveeta, and milk.  
If you want soup, 2-4 cups of water. 
Simmer until the cabbage is tender.  This recipe also  freezes well.
