Step by Step Method

Step 1

Brown lean ground beef with onions and jalapeno in a large skillet/pan with a tight fitting lid.

Step 2

Drain can of tomatoes, reserving juice.

Step 3

Add water to juice until you have 2.5 cups of liquid.

Step 4

Add garlic to ground beef mixture and stir until fragrant. As soon as you smell the garlic, add the liquid, canned tomatoes and taco seasoning. Cover and simmer for about 25 minutes or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed by the rice. Stir occasionally.

Step 5

Remove from heat. Taste, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. When it's seasoned properly, replace the cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Step 6

Top with shredded cheese, sliced green onions and sliced black olives, if desired.

I made this as instructed except for using green olives as hubby will not eat black olives. This was very tasty, we really enjoyed it.

We enjoyed this casserole very much. It was super easy to make. We topped our casserole with cheese and black olives. We didn't have any green onions unfortunately.
