Manic Monday Recipe~Mexican Rice Casserole

I am so happy I came across this recipe on Pinterest, because it is so ridiculously yummy!  I made it this weekend for dinner, and we all loved it.  I made a few changes to For the Love of Cooking's Recipe.  Please try this recipe if your family likes Mexican.  It will be a go to recipe for my family from now on!

Make sure to come back on Wednesday for my Share the Wealth Link Party, it's open until Sunday each week!

1Pound Ground Beef/Turkey/Chicken

2 C. Prepared Rice (Um, yes I definitely used the short cut rice!)
1 Can Black Beans
1 Can RoTel Diced Tomatoes With Green Chiles
1 Tbsp. Fresh/Dried Cilantro
2 C. Cheddar/Mexican Cheese
1 Tbsp. Taco Seasoning
1/4 C. Chopped Red Onion

Start by browning your meat.  Once cooked thoroughly, add chopped onion and mix.
 Once the onions become a bit tender, then mix in the can of beans, tomatoes, and cilantro.
 Next add your rice and stir well!
 Spread rice mixture into a greased baking dish.
 Spread cheese over mixture and bake covered with tin foil at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
 Enjoy your delicious casserole with a dollop of sour cream and guacamole!
