    PSU Lioness's Note:

    My family and I got flooded out of our house after Tropical Storm Lee and while repairs were being made, we relocated our family to our camper. I only had a few things to cook with (no oven or stove top) so I came up with this casserole that can be made in an electric skillet. It has all the flavor of a fajita in a simple casserole! If you can't find the cheese soup mix, you can use a packet of cheese sauce from a box of mac and cheese (and it will probably be cheaper!)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 large sweet red pepper, cut in half width-wise and then cut into strips
    • 1 medium onion, cut in half width-wise and then cut into strips
    • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet fajita seasoning mix (McCormick makes one)
    • 1 (15 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes, lightly drained
    • 1 (15 ounce) can corn, fully drained
    • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet powdered cheese soup mix (Concord Food makes one)
    • 2/3 cup milk
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 cups cooked rice (I used Success 10-minute boil-in-bag rice)
    • sour cream (optional)
    • hot sauce (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Begin making rice according to package directions.
    2. 2
      Heat electric skillet to 300 (or medium).
    3. 3
      Brown ground beef in skillet until no longer pink; drain. Remove from skillet and set aside.
    4. 4
      Melt butter in skillet.
    5. 5
      Add peppers and onions. Saute until crisp-tender (about 5 minutes).
    6. 6
      Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
    7. 7
      Reduce heat to 200 (or low).
    8. 8
      Add beef, water and fajita mix to skillet. Stir well to combine.
    9. 9
      Add tomatoes and corn. Stir to combine. Cover and allow to simmer.
    10. 10
      Mix cheese soup mix and milk until lumps are gone. You want a saucy, but not soupy, consistency so if it seems too thick, add another splash of milk and stir.
    11. 11
      Add butter and microwave for 1 minute. Stir.
    12. 12
      Stir cheese soup mix into beef mixture.
    13. 13
      When rice is finished cooking, stir rice into beef/cheese mixture.
    14. 14
      Serve with hot sauce and sour cream.
