Hearty Taco Casserole

Hearty Taco Casserole

This is one of my favorite meals to make. I found the recipe out of a Taste of Home comfort food diet cookbook and slightly modified it.

What you need:

-2/3 cup cooked brown rice

-4-5 Tbs water

-3/4 cup all-purpose flour

-1/8 tsp salt

-2 Tbs cold butter


-1/2 lb lean ground beef

-1/2 cup chopped onion

-2 garlic cloves minced

-1 cup water

-1 envelope taco seasoning

-2 eggs, lightly beaten

-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

-shredded lettuce

-chopped tomatoes


-sour cream

What you need to do:

1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in enough water to form a soft dough. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a 12×8 rectangle. Press into a 13×9 baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400 for 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

2. For filling, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until the meat is cooked through and drain. Add water, taco seasoning and rice. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, simmer, uncovered for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in eggs and spread mixture over crust.

3. Cover and bake for 15-17 minutes or until the filling is set. Cut into squares. Top with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with sour cream and salsa.
