This is really a very mild rice dish. My son doesn't like really spicy food so I came up with this for him. It also would be good as a topping for nachos.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs ground beef
  • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) bag boil-in-the-bag rice (cooked)
  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa (please use a small jar of your favorite salsa, I like using mild)
  • 1 12 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese


  1. Cook ground beef in a 10 inch skillet until it's no longer pink; drain.
  2. Add rice and salsa to beef.
  3. Stir well.
  4. Sprinkle cheese evenly over mixture.
  5. Cover and let cheese melt (about 5 minutes).
  6. If desired serve with refried beans and a salad.

This was really good!!! So easy to make and ingredients I always have on hand. I like the fact that it doesn't have chili powder or cumin in it.(except for what's in the salsa. I used 1/2 cup of "regular" white rice and cooked it first. I will definitely be making this again. when I want Mexican Rice. Thanks for sharing your recipe shapeweaver. Made fp PAC Fall '08
