It made a HUGE mess.......


But they LOVED it!



Here's the original recipe:

Taco Rice Skillet

Brown: 1 pound ground beef, drain off fat

Add:
1 chopped onion
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 cup raw rice
1 pkg.
taco seasoning
1 cup water1 small can tomato sauce
1 can ranch style beans (optional)

Cook together until rice is tender.

Serve with grated cheese, chopped fresh tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream
and picante sauce (optional).



Pamm's Taco Rice Skillet
(born out of what I had on-hand)

Brown: 1 pound ground beef, drain off fat

Add:
1 tbs. chopped onion flakes
1 large can crushed tomatoes
2 cups raw brown rice
1 pkg. taco seasoning
2 cups water
1 small can tomato sauce
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

Cook together until rice is tender. This took much longer than I expected--at least 45 minutes.

I served it plain. I would think adults would like a side of tortilla chips with this along with grated cheese, chopped fresh tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream
and picante sauce.

It made a HUGE mess, but oh so worth it. Everyone ate all I gave them and asked for more.

My recipes made a lot! I have enough for two more toddler meals. This would be great to make as a supper, then put in the freezer in lunch-sized portions for work days or even freeze for another dinner later on.
