Southwestern Rice Bake Recipe

Whenever I have a hard time planning dinner, my husband requests his favorite bake. Often, I use it as an entree, served with warm tortillas. Other times, I eliminate the meat and present it as a spicy side dish.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 17, 2013

"We like this, but I used 1/2 pound of ground beef with 1/2 large onion and taco seasoning in place of the called for plain ground beef. I forgot the green onions, but added the black olives with the rice mixture and baked it. We ate it with fresh, diced tomatoes on top. Very good!"
