    Dissie's Note:

    Easy meal and everyone usually loves this. I usually make it into a casserole, and put finished product into into a greased casserole dish, then add the cheese to the top and bake until cheese melts and serve.

      When rice mixture comes to a boil, add hamburger with onions and bell pepper to rice, add in cans of corn and cajun seasoning. Bring mixture to a boil and cover. Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir often to prevent rice from sticking. When rice is done, add cheese, stir and serve!

      This was a great, easy recipe. I used it as a side dish for our cinco de mayo party. I substituted spicy sausage for the ground beef and used cayenne and cumin in place of the cajun (only to keep it a little more in theme with our party). Instead of baking in a casserole, I popped into our slow cooker after step 3 and it kept perfectly for a couple of hours while we enjoyed our guests. Thanks for sharing!
