Everything about this casserole reminds me of everyone’s favorite Mexican rice dish from a restaurant. Except for the fact that it can be transformed into a comprehensive and hearty supper in 30 minutes or less! This rice casserole has always been a staple in my household since it is a dish that everyone can agree is delicious.
When I was young, it was something I would mix together and then bake in the oven. I was going to make this into a one-pan meal on the stovetop when I discovered I could simply prepare it on the stovetop. The rice cooks in the pan right with the cooked ground beef and onion, corn, salsa, tomato sauce, and spices, resulting in a dish that is full of delicious flavor! You may toss in your favorite shredded cheese and garnish with green onions when the rice is soft and fluffy. This dish is also delicious served with an additional side of salsa and a spoonful of sour cream!
