Mexican Hamburger Rice Bake

Another one of the sites I've been looking through lately is The Family Homestead.

I haven't been able to look at all of it, she has alot of info on there, but I did find some good sounding recipes- this is one of them. And it was good! The boys said it was a "little spicy", but I thought it was great- and Naomi ate it too and didn't seem to mind the spiciness.

Mexican Hamburger Rice

Ground meat: $2.
Rice: $.40
"Rotel" $.62
Tomato sauce $.30
Cheese: $.92
Meal Total: $4.24
(or with venison: $3.08)

I am going to try this. We like spicy food! even my 2 year old. I have a question you usually use non-instant or instant oatmeal? I want to try your cranberry oat squares and baked oatmeal.
I look over your blog all the time, seriously....I am hooked! I love it. So informative.

I just have the regular rolled oats- so not instant. Most of the time when recipes call for rolled oats, they mean "old fashioned" or "regular" meaning, non-instant. The only recipe book I've come across that used instant all the time was "Feed Me I'm Yours".
I used to get the instant oatmeal because I thought it was so much faster, but it really wasn't- the difference being when you add the oats:
Instant oatmeal: Bring water and salt to boil, add oats, turn off burner.
Rolled Oats: Bring everything (water, salt, oats) to boil, stir, turn off burner.
Hope that helps!

Did you ever know that your blog is torture to look at when your hungery?;)
The mexican hamburger rice bake sounds good, how much does it make?


Rachel said...

To know that I torture people.. ah, such fulfillment. LOL
It makes a 9x13 pan full. So, with your brothers, you might want to double it. :-)
