Seven-Layer Casserole (Crockpot) **

We were super disappointed with this one.  The flavor was great.  No complaints there.  But it's like a soup.  You can't even tell that the rice used to be rice.  I've done lots of rice dishes in the past with no problems.  The few that gave us trouble just ended up with bloaty, mushy rice.  I can't even describe this, except to say that the rice just pretty much dissolved.  I scooped a full cup of extra juice out of the crock when I was serving.  Just a big mess.  We ate it, since the flavor was okay, but I wouldn't make it again.

1 cup uncooked rice
1 (12-oz) can whole-kernel corn, undrained
2 (8-oz) cans tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 tsp salt
1/4-1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 lbs ground beef
6 to 8 slices lean bacon

Spread uncooked rice in bottom of slow cooker. Spoon corn with juice over rice.
Mix together tomato sauce, water, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
Spoon half the tomato sauce mixture over corn. Sprinkle with onion and bell pepper.
Crumble uncooked ground beef over vegetables. Top with remaining tomato sauce mixture.
Cut bacon slice into fourth and arrange over top.
Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, until vegetables and beef are as tender as you like them. Uncover slow cooker during last 15 minutes of cooking time to crisp bacon.
