Spanish Wheat

4 to 6 cups cooked cracked wheat
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 quart jar tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 to 2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese

Put olive oil in large fry pan and saute onions, garlic, and green pepper for about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, ground beef, and spices. Cook 10 minutes. Pour over cooked cracked wheat and continue cooking for another 10 minutes. Serve topped with grated cheese.

Testing comment: This had a really good flavor and was a nice change from rice. (You could use half rice if your family isn't used to a lot of wheat in their diet.) I used cooked whole wheat kernels instead of cracked wheat because we like the texture better. My family liked it and I will definitely make it again.
