  • Cook's Note:
  • For pitch-in dinners: Put the rice in the bottom of a baking dish with the meat mixture on top. Top with cheese and heat in oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees (175 degrees C), until cheese melts.
  • Substitute ground chicken or turkey for the ground beef if desired. Sour cream can be substituted for the ranch dressing.

Changed it up a little: layered rice on the bottom of casserole dish, spread 1 cup of sour cream on top of the rice, left out the ranch dressing and the corn in the meat mixture.....very very good!

So nice to find an easy-to-make, inexpensive, healthy recipe which my kids actually love!! I used half the salsa and half ketchup; and half the ranch dressing and half sour cream. So fast and yummy!

I was really surprised! It doesn't look pretty when it comes out, but it really tastes good! I used low fat ranch, and next time I will use quinoa to make it healthier, but we really enjoyed this and it is very quick! Will make again!

Giving this 5 star for how it's advertised to be....quick, easy, family friendly meal. Took others advice and used half sour cream and half ranch. Used lime and shredded cheddar as topping. Husband ate his over tortilla chips. As a warning....this is not eye appealing! If that bothers you, I'd plan on mixing it with the rice and rolling it up into tortillas to serve. ;) I sent this to my two college aged kids to try because of how fast and easy it is

Very tasty and super quick. I used chopped garlic, threw in onions and jalapeños and switched the ranch to creamy Parmesan dressing (cause it's all I had). Came out delicious!
