    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.

    Freeze it or use it for stuffed shells, Mexican lasagna or Mexican tater tot casserole. I make all of these with left over taco meat and then freeze them and use when we have game nights or during the winter when I don’t know what to have and don’t feel like cooking I go to my freezer and pull something out.
