"My wife and I like this dish even more a day or two after it's made. Dress up the top with grated cheese after it's been reheated." Ken Sissney, Aubrey, Texas

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large saucepan; add half of the taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in rice; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce.

Step 3

Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain; return meat to pan. Stir in remaining taco seasoning.

Step 4

Spread half of rice mixture in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spread beans evenly over rice mixture; top with beef mixture and half of cheese. Spread the remaining rice mixture over cheese; top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.
