Mexican Casserole

I made this for dinner last night, and it must be one of my very favorite recipes.

Reason #1: It requires very little effort.

Reason #2: It requires very few ingredients.

Reason #3: It meets my  need for mexican food every now and then.

So, without further adue, here's the recipe:

What you need:

You're also going to need:

1 lb. of ground beef
1 package of taco seasoning
2 tablespoons of butter

How to Make It:

First, you need to heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Next, brown your meat in a skillet. Once the meat has cooked through, drain the meat.

Then, follow the directions on the taco seasoning pack.

Your meat should look something like this.

If you're a multi-tasker, you can also start the water for your rice.
For the rice I bought, it requires 3 1/2 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of water to come to a boil.

Once it comes to a boil, pour in the rice, stir, and cover. Cook for 20 minutes on medium to low heat.

While the rice and meat is cooking, you can also dice up the cheese into small cubes.

After everything has been prepared, it is time to mix in the remaining ingredients. Pick your favorite casserole dish and combine the meat, rice, cheese cubes, and Rotel tomatoes.

Mix all of the ingredients together until they are evenly dispersed throughout the dish.

Now is time to crush up handfuls of Doritos and spread them evenly over the top of the mixture.

Cover and put in the oven for 45 minutes.
