Instructions

1.   Heat oil in 24 cm deep frying pan over medium heat until hot.  Add beef mince, cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cooked. 

2.   Stir in taco seasoning mix, rice, water, salsa and corn. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring once to check that rice isn’t sticking to the bottom. Remove from the heat and let stand 5 minutes. 

3.   Fluff the rice mixture with a fork and sprinkle with the cheese. Cover and let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with the lettuce, tomato and sour cream, if desired.
