4 cups rice, cooked
3 ½ cups Salsa, divided (replace ½ the water with salsa for the rice.)
1 large can Refried Beans
1 can Black Beans
1 can Corn
1 lb. Ground Beef, browned
1-2 cups Cheese, shredded
Onions, diced *optional
Bell Peppers, diced *optional
Carrots, shredded *optional
Sour Cream *optional
Cook rice, replacing half the water with salsa or picante sauce.
Brown beef and add taco seasoning.
If using onions, bell peppers and/or carrots, sauté them for a minute or two, until just softened.
Layer in a 9x13 pan: rice – beef – optional veggies - refried beans – black beans – corn – salsa – cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees until heated through and cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with Guacamole and/or sour cream on top and use tortilla chips to eat it.
*Make meatless, just season either the rice or beans with taco seasoning instead.
Kids love to eat this with chips!
