Morning Everyone

Well today is my last play day with my little package. We have had a great time. Lots of giggles and drooling.....Going to do some stocking wrapping this afternoon and then have to take back the package to Mommy and Big Brother and make the family dinner ...

This recipe is quick and easy and on the Mexican style. Sometimes what I do is put this inside a tortilla wrap instead of the rice so what ever works for you "Just do it"


1 lb (500 g) extra lean ground beef

1 envelope of Taco Seasoning Mix

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water

1 cup (250 mL) Old El Paso* Thick N' Chunky Salsa

1 cup (250 mL) Green Giant* Frozen Niblets* or Peaches & Cream Whole Kernel Corn

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) uncooked instant rice

3/4 cup (75 mL) shredded Mexican cheese or Cheddar cheese

1 cup (250 mL) shredded lettuce

3/4 cup (175 mL) chopped tomato

Sour cream, if desired
In large skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown; drain.
Stir in taco seasoning mix, water, salsa and corn. Heat to boiling; stir in rice. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat. Cover; let stand 8 minutes.
Fluff rice mixture with fork; sprinkle with cheese. Cover; let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle lettuce around edge of skillet; sprinkle tomato in circle next to lettuce. Serve with sour cream.
