  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 pkg. (1-1/4 oz.) TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Taco Seasoning Mix

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Prepare Dinner as directed on package. While Macaroni is cooking, cook meat with taco seasoning as directed on package.
  2. Stir sour cream into prepared Dinner; spoon 1/2 into 8-inch square baking dish. Top with layers of meat mixture, 1 cup cheese and remaining Dinner mixture; cover with foil.
  3. Bake 15 min.; top with salsa and remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

**For extra crunch, prepare and bake as directed, topping with 1/2 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips along with the salsa and cheese. 

**Personal Review: Really easy to make – I added chopped onions while cooking the meat mixture.  I also added the chips on top as well.  It tasted awesome.**

Recipe & picture courtesy of Kraft Foods

Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 45 min
Makes: 4 servings, one packet each

  • 1-1/2 cups instant white rice, uncooked
  • 1-1/2 cups hot water
  • 1 Tbsp. TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Taco Seasoning Mix
  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1 lb.)
  • 1 each: green and red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup TACO BELL® HOME ORIGINALS® Thick ‘N Chunky Salsa
  • 1/2 cup KRAFT Mexican Style Shredded Taco Cheese
  1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Fold up all sides of each of four 18×12-inch sheets of heavy-duty foil to form 1-inch rim; spray foil with cooking spray. Combine rice, water and taco seasoning; spoon evenly onto centers of foil. Top evenly with remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring up foil sides. Double fold top and ends to seal each packet, leaving room for heat circulation inside. Place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF). Let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packets.

 **Personal Review: This was very easy to make – but I would suggest seasoning the chicken in something  before putting the packets together.  I think this could be an awesome dish with a seasoned chicken breast vs. a plain one.  But it did taste good.**
