Alright if you make this, make sure that you cook the onions longer the corn.
UNLESS you like biting into crunchy chunks of onion.
You do you.
What I used:
1 lb of lean ground beef
1 pack of taco seasoning
1 small diced yellow onion
1 cup of frozen corn
1.5 cups of cooked white rice (use as much as you like)
4.5 oz of diced green chili's
2 cups of Colby Jack shredded cheese (more or less to your liking, I am an entire bag kind of gal)
If you want garnish such as cilantro, avocado, salsa, etc.... just get all wacky.
What I did:
Season and brown the beef, drain, add the taco seasoning and 1/2 cup of water. Stir until it thickens. I used my trusty combo of garlic powder, Lawry's, and onion powder for the beef prior to adding the taco seasoning.
You can set it aside and use the same pan, but I usually cook things as quickly as I can, so I have another pan already going.
In the second skillet I put about 2 tbl of butter and added the diced onions. They were a little too big for my liking, but I would rather eat them like Scott diced them then have to do it myself. Next time I will cook them down more before I add the corn, because they were oh so big and crunchy.
Add in the frozen corn and cook on medium-high heat until the corn is slightly brown on the edges. I ain't gonna lie, it took like 15 of me stirring for this to happen. Can we not.
I put some garlic powder and Lawry's on the veggie mixture.
Oh and btw, you should have your rice cooking as well during this time.
My bad. The Astros are about to the eliminated from the playoffs and I am distraught.
Alright so when the corn looks good, and the onions aren't crunchy, add in the green chili's, then stir it real good, then slowly stir in the rice until it's completely coated.
Of course I seasoned everything again, I just sensed this would be bland.
I waited 5 minutes or so, then added in the taco meat, juices and all.
I added half the bag of Colby Jack (use whatever cheese tickles your butt), and stirred it all together, let it sit (set?) another 5 minutes or so, then added the rest of the cheese and put the lid on it.
After 15 min or so, we feasted.
