Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Stir the rice and 1/2 cup water together in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover, and cook in the microwave on High for 6 minutes until the water is fully absorbed; set aside. While the rice is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef. Cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.

  • Reduce heat to medium, and stir in the taco seasoning, corn, 1/2 cup water, 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, and the cooked rice. Cook and stir until the cheese has melted and the corn is hot. Spoon the mixture into the flour tortillas. Roll into a tight cylinder, and pack into an 8x11-inch baking dish (it will be a tight squeeze). Pour the salsa over top, and sprinkle evenly with 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese topping has melted and is beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.

This was very good. I only substituted the minute rice with cooked brown rice and it was delicious. My family all had seconds and there was no leftover. Read More

I am not a fan of this. My boys liked it. I used an 11x7 pan and they ate them all. Read More

Quick easy and yummy! I used my frozen cooked ground beef (had onion garlic and green peppers in it) then heated it up and added the taco seasoning and about 3 tablespoons tomato sauce because it seemed dry. Then followed the directions from there. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

Delicious! I used 1/2 can corn and 1/2 can black beans and rice that we already had cooked plus I used a combination of cheddar and mozzarella. There's only three of us so we had leftovers for lunch the next day. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I LOVE this recipe!! I too wanted a good alternative to plain tacos and this is definitely it! I made a few changes including adding onions to the ground beef while cooking I also added about a half cup of salsa and 2 spoonfulls of sourcream to the meat mixture before putting it in the tortillas. I also used only half of the suggested corn amount out of personal preference. My fiance absolutely loved it and since it was just us two there were lots of leftovers! Read More

Nice alternative to regular taco's. I used 3 cups of frozen corn (cooked & drained) instead of the canned. This cuts the sodium significantly. I also serve it with bowls of condiments: lettuce diced tomato chopped red or green onion sour cream salsa or pico de gallo Mexican rice refried or Borracho beans. I also buy my pico de gallo and flour tortillas fresh off the grill from a local Mexican restaurant. Yummy dinner that is liked by the whole family! Read More

I've made these twice and they are DELICOUS! I absolutely love this recipe definitely a keeper. My boyfriend loved them and we had lots of leftovers. Like the poster before me I also used frozen corn instead of canned to reduce sodium. I also replaced the ground beef with ground turkey to reduce fat. I've made them twice: the first time with uncooked instant white rice and the next time with some mexican rice I'd made the day before and both were delicious. Next time I may try to throw in some black beans and maybe some chopped onion-- like another posted suggested there really is so much that you can add/change to this and it'll probably still work! Thank you for posting this = Read More
