Ingredient List

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
  • 500 g beef mince
  • 1 pack (25 g) Old El Paso™ Garlic & Paprika Seasoning Mix for Tacos
  • 250 g basmati rice
  • 600 ml water
  • 1 jar (226 g) Old El Paso™ Thick ‘n Chunky Salsa
  • 200 g tinned or frozen sweetcorn
  • 75 g Mexican style cheese or Cheddar cheese, grated

To Serve

  • 1 little gem lettuce, shredded
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • Soured cream


  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.
