Mexican Rice-a-Roni

cau originally posted this recipe in What's for Dinner March 2009.

Mexican Rice a Roni


  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1 box beef flavored Rice and Vermicelli mix
  • 1 can Rotel tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1 pkg taco seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (your choice)
  • Directions]Brown ground beef, drain and set aside. Brown the rice and vermicelli according to directions on the box.
  • Mix all ingredients except cheese. Add 1 3/4 cups hot water. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Add the cheese and stir to mix. Cover and let sit until cheese is melted.
Serve in flour tortillas, or as a dip with chips or just as a main course. Be creative with your add-ins too. Corn, green beans, mushrooms, you get the idea. I have also used canned chicken, tuna, or leftover meat from another meal. We love onions, peppers and olives added in.
