 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups instant white rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 can Ranch Style beans
  • 1 can Ro-tel tomatoes
  • 2 tsp dried minced onion flakes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 1 can (10.75-oz)cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch pan with cooking spray.

In a large skillet, brown meat and drain off fat. Stir in beans, tomatoes, onion flakes, taco seasoning, soup and water. Simmer over medium-low heat until everything is well combined and heated through. Remove from heat.

In a pot, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add instant rice. Cover and remove from heat. Let rice sit for 5 minutes, until all water is absorbed.

Stir cooked rice and 1 cup of cheddar cheese into beef mixture. Pour into prepared 9x13-inch pan. Top with remaining 1 cup of cheddar cheese.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Top with your favorite taco toppings.

**I used instant white rice. You can use instant brown rice, just make sure to follow the directions on the package. You may also omit the instant rice and 2 cups of water and use 4 cups of cooked rice.**
