Betty Crocker Rancheros Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Stacky5

This was a really excellent recipe that I got from one of my OLD Betty Crocker magazines. My kids love this and it really is easy (almost effortless), and it is also very filling. I like to season the ground beef with a sprinkling of taco seasoning while it cooks, for more of a Tex-Mex flavor. Good for working Moms who are too tired to cook at the end of the day!

We really enjoyed this casserole. I made just a few changes. First, I chopped up some onion and added it to the meat as it was browning. I used Mexi-corn instead of plain corn. I also left out the bell peppers (because I didn't have any on hand) and sprinkled the meat with 1 t. cumin, 1 t chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon ground chili pepper. I will make again, as this was a tasty easy week-night meal!
