    Taco Bake Casserole

    Source of Recipe

    List of Ingredients

    1 pound ground beef

    1 small onion, chopped

    1 cup Minute Rice

    1 cup water

    1 can Ro-Tel™ diced tomatoes and mild green chilies

    1/2 cup mild taco sauce

    1 envelope taco seasoning mix (I use Taco Bell® Home Originals™)

    1 12 count package taco shells, broken in half, divided

    2 cups shredded mexican blend cheese* (cheddar/jack combo), divided


    Preheat oven to 375, grease 11x7 baking dish. Prepare rice. Cook ground beef and onion until brown and crumbled; drain. Stir in rice, seasoning mix, Rotel™ and taco sauce. Heat until warmed through. Layer half of the broken taco shells on bottom of baking dish. Cover with half of the meat mixture; sprinkle with half the shredded cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Cover and bake for 25 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove cover, and broil an additional 5 or so minutes to make cheese golden brown.
    Remove, allow to cool 5 minute before serving. Serves 6-8

    *you can use the "taco blend" variety or just plain mild cheddar instead
