One Pot Mexican Rice Casserole


One Pot Mexican Rice Casserole is a tasty, easy, and flavorful meat recipe! Everyone will enjoy this delicious casserole packed with corn, rice, beef and tons of taco flavour!


The flavor is similar to the most popular food-style Mexican rice. It’s just transformed into a full and hearty dinner in just 30 to 30 minutes! This rice casserole has long been an essential in our house because it’s something we be all in agreement about. It was once something I would mix on the stove and then bake. It was until I realized it was possible to turn it as a stovetop single pan dish. The rice cooks in the pan with the ground beef that has been cooked and corn, onion tomato sauce, salsa and spices for a delicious flavor! Once the rice is soft, you can mix in your favorite cheese that you’ve shred and garnish with green onions If you’d like. We love this dish with a portion of salsa, and a scoop of Sour cream!
