HOW TO MAKE ONE POT MEXICAN RICE CASSEROLE
Step 1: In a large skillet, cook the ground beef seasoned with salt and pepper over medium-high heat until brown. When done, drain any excess grease.
Step 2: Place the pan back into the stove. Sprinkle the beef with garlic powder followed by taco seasoning.
Step 3: Add the rice into the pan along with the broth, corn, tomato sauce, and salsa. Stir well.
Step 4: Bring to a boil and cover the pan. Adjust the heat to low and continue to simmer for about 18 to 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
Step 5: Sprinkle the cheese on top and cover again. Allow the cheese to melt for about 2 to 3 minutes.
For this recipe, I use long-grain rice but you can use instant rice instead. Remember that when using instant rice you only need to simmer the mixture for around 5 to 7 minutes to soften the rice.
