Taco Casserole

I use this one often and if you come to my house, you’re almost sure to have it sometime. Maybe more than once…

1 lb ground beef

1 onion

1 packet taco seasoning

1/2 c. rice (or use 1 cup of leftover rice)

1 (15oz) can tomato sauce

1 (15oz) can chili beans

Shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the beef and the onion until no pink remains. Add taco seasoning, rice (if using uncooked rice, you will need to simmer the mixture for 20 minutes to soften the rice), tomato sauce, and chili beans. To eat in a pinch, simmer mixture on stovetop until bubbly and add cheese on top to melt. Otherwise, you can put the mixture (cover with cheese!) in a 9×13 in pan and cook at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.

Serve hot with tortilla chips or taco shells. Top with lettuce, salsa, avocado, fresh bell pepper, olives, etc.

Enjoy!
