Mexican Rice and Beef

 1 lb. ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 1/2 C. water
1 C. salsa
1 C. frozen corn
1 1/2 C. uncooked rice
black pepper
1 C grated pepper jack cheese

In a large skillet, brown beef and drain off fat.  Add taco seasoning, water, salsa and corn.  Cook, uncovered, until mixture boils.  Stir in rice and pepper, cook for one minute.  Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 6 minutes.  Fluff mixture with a fork, sprinkle with cheese and cover for another 2 minutes.  Serve with lettuce and tomato, tortilla chips, hard or soft tortillas, or just eat plain. 


  1. question...is this just normal rice or minute rice??

  2. i'm guessing minute rice b/c 6min later my rice is definitely not done...maybe add that to the recipe :)
