Taco Rice Bake – loaded with taco meat, beans, Rotel, cheese, and rice. It’s a full meal in one dish! We like to top the casserole with our favorite taco toppings – cheese, sour cream, jalapeños and guacamole! This a great change to our usual taco night!!
Taco meat, rice, and cheese baked to perfection! Can be served great on its own, in lettuce wraps, or your favorite type of taco shell! Garnish options are endless: including avocado, shredded lettuce, taco sauce, sour cream, beans, and more! A great dish for the whole family.
This Sour Cream Rice Bake is pure comfort food. It’s ridiculously easy to make, with just six ingredients. It takes about 40 minutes from start to finish. The flavor is somewhat mellow and the rice is super creamy.
Serve a deliciously flavorful rice casserole dish at dinnertime tonight! The whole family will love trying this cheesy Tex-Mex Beef & Rice Casserole.
