Tomato, onion, sour cream….delish

  5. Taco Casserole


    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 pound ground beef or turkey
    3 tablespoons taco seasoning (or a 1 ounce store bought packet)
    2 cups salsa – I did a can of rotel and topped up with salsa
    3 cups beef stock
    1 cup uncooked rice – I used basmati
    5 ounces black beans drained and rinsed
    1 cup frozen corn
    2 cups cheddar cheese


    Add 2 teaspoons olive oil to a hot oven-proof skillet. Add in the ground beef and saute until browned.

    Drain the fat from the pan. Stir in the taco seasoning, salsa, beef stock, and rice.

    Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and cover, stirring occasionally for 20 – 25 minutes or until the rice is cooked through.

    Stir in the black beans and the frozen corn. Top with cheddar cheese and put under the broiler in the oven until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

    Make up some “Cincinnati Chili” with it! I’d add a can of “ Rotel tomatoes and chiles”, chili powder ,a dash of cinnamon and clove or allspice, and some chocolate. While
    That cooks up a little, boil your spaghetti .
    Serve the chili on the pasta with chopped onion, a mound of shredded cheddar, sour cream( and hot sauce if you like!)
