Taco Rice

Kelly Church


This recipe came from necessity and a nearly empty pantry once over 15 yrs ago. Since then it has become a favorite of my 17 yr old son's. I have made this for large groups of people and my mom and dad. Everyone seems to love it!

1 box
beef rice-a-roni (or store brand)
1 pkg
taco seasoning mix
1 lb
1 c
cheddar cheese, shredded
1 to 2 c
crushed nacho cheese doritos


1Cook beef rice-a-roni per package directions.
2In a separate skillet, brown the hamburger. Drain and rinse if desired.
3Add taco seasoning to the browned, drained ground hamburger and simmer for about 5 minutes.
4Combine finished rice-a-roni and taco meat together. (Don't try to just stir the hamburger meat, rice and seasoning all at the same time. It just doesn't taste right)
5Place the mixture into a flat casserole dish and top with the shredded cheese then the crushed doritos.
6Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Be careful to watch that the doritos don't burn.
7Serve with sour cream and salsa for topping.
