Expert Tips

Look for cans of Spanish rice in the section with Mexican/Hispanic items. If canned Spanish rice is not available, cook an envelope of Spanish rice mix and use about 1 3/4 cups of the rice.

Serve this hearty Tex-Mex casserole with your favorite taco toppers--shredded lettuce, chopped tomato or avocado, sour cream or taco sauce.
