1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
3 Tbsp. flour
3 chicken bouillon cubes
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1 cup quick-cooking rice
2 cans (7 oz. each) crabmeat, drained and flaked
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 can (4 oz.) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup sliced pimento-stuffed green olives
1 cup buttered bread crumbs
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese

In skillet, melt butter and lightly saute celery, onion, and
green bell pepper. Remove from heat and blend in flour. Dissolve
