Betty Crocker Rancheros Casserole

Betty Crocker Rancheros Casserole created by Chef shapeweaver

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!

    I first started making this from one of my Betty Crocker pamphlet books. The tweaks I have made are: I brown my burger with chopped onion, minced garlic, cumin, adobo, and some sofrito. Once the burger is browned, I use a packet of low sodium taco seasoning to sprinkle on the burger. Then I use Mexican shredded cheese in place of the taco seasoned cheese.

    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!

    This was made on 11/05/08 for the "Stacky5 Cook-A-Thon" and as part of mine and SO's dinner.As I was browning the ground beef, some chooped onion, some freeze dried red and green bell pepper flakes, and about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of Recipe#199955 were added.I didn't have any taco cheese, so I took 1/2 cup of quesadilla cheese and 1/2 cup of sharp chedder mixed in about 2 Tablespoons of the above taco seasoning and it worked great.I had some leftover corn from a previous meal and used that instead of the canned.The baking time for this was "right on the money" However, I think that the next time this made, I will add a bit more taco seasoning to the meat. All of us at "ZAAR" are going to miss you Stacy. "Keep Smiling :)"
