1 pound extra lean ground beef
2 packages taco seasoning mix, (1 1/4-ounce)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/3 cup carrots, finely chopped
3 1/2 cups water
2 1/4 ounce can sliced ripe olives, drained
7 ounce can diced green chiles
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cups white rice, converted
15 ounce can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

To make the meatballs, in a medium bowl, combine the ground beef,
1/2 package taco seasoning mix, cilantro, bread crumbs, carrots,
and 1/2 Cup of the water. Mix to blend well. Roll into 24 balls
about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Set aside. For the beans and rice,
in a 4- or 5-quart electric slow cooker, mix together the remaining
3 Cups water with the remaining taco seasoning mix, olives, green
chiles, garlic, bell pepper, and rice. Gently push the meatballs
down into the rice mixture. Cover and cook on the low heat setting
4 hours, or until the rice is just tender and the meatballs are
cooked through. Gently stir in the beans. Cover and cook 30 minutes
