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!

Ingredients

  • 1 box
    beef rice-a-roni (or store brand)
  • 1 pkg
    taco seasoning mix
  • 1 lb
    hamburger
  • 1 c
    cheddar cheese, shredded

How to Make Taco Rice

Step-by-Step

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