Taco Rice

This is a recipe I shared on the old AOL Tightwad boards back in the late 90s or early 2000s. My late friend Barbara Garrett always referred to me as Taco Rice Belinda, thanks to this recipe. :)

Taco Rice


3 pounds ground beef 
3 onions, diced
3 packages taco seasoning mix
3 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 ounce)
6 cups cooked rice
6 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 gallon zip lock bags
3 pint zip lock bags


Brown meat and drain. 
Combine meat, onion, taco seasoning packs, cooked
rice and tomatoes in large saucepan. 
Simmer about 5 minutes. 

Freezing and Cooking Directions: 

Cool, label and freeze in gallon bags. 
Also freeze a pint zip lock with 2 cups of shredded cheese for each meal.

To Serve:

Thaw completely. 
Serve with corn or flour tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese.
