I use a potato masher when browning my ground beef, and use a rolling pin on my ground corn chips (I gently roll the pin over the unopened bag).

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is an easy, quick, and economical dinner that packs a big punch of flavor. The slightly spicy Spanish rice has the typical Mexican flavors you'd expect and is the source for all the flavor in this easy dinner. The sweet corn mixed with the spices is the perfect combination. The crunchy corn chips and cheese are a nice topping for this easy casserole. A great dinner idea if you're busy and looking to get something on the table.
