Taco-seasoned ground beef simmered with tomato and rice is topped with salsa, cheese and lettuce for a tortilla chip-dipping meal.
cost per recipe: $7.49
Cook the beef and taco seasoning in a 10-inch skillet until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Stir the soup, water and rice in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender.
Top with the salsa, cheese and lettuce. Serve with the tortilla chips for dipping.
Easy Quick dinner
Have made this a couple times. I leave out the salsa because my family does not like. I add in a can of Cheddar Cheese soup along with the tomato and a packet of taco seasoning. It is flavorful but not overly spicy. Also serve with tortilla chips crushed on top with some shredded cheese.
Great easy meal
To make it healthy, I used ground turkey instead of hamburger and used gluten free chips and my kids couldn't eat enough of it. They loved it. This will be a family favorite
My family LOVES this meal!! I have made it several times and I have added either pinto beans or black beans along with all the other ingredients and it is still amazing!. I believe the beans add more filling to the meal.
Family friendly meal.
This was a big hit with my kids. My kids and I ate it with tortilla chips and my husband wrapped it in a flour tortilla. I used ground turkey but it would have been better with ground beef. The turkey was a little bland.
The recipe sounds tasty, I want to make it today. But, just to cut down on the cholesterol and saturated fat, I think I would use 2 cups whole pinto beans mashed a little bit or a can of fat-free refried beans in place of the hamburger.
Then, I would use brown rice that is already cooked to give it some added fiber and tasty texture. So, the extra water on the recipe wouldn't be necessary. I would also use fresh avocado slivers to replace the cheese.
Yummy for a healthy heart and body!
