Before the movie fun begins we must eat dinner. The thing about movie night is we usually have several snacks. Don't you? Tonight we're trying out a new taco recipe shared with us from Minute Rice.Here is some information about Minute Rice:
- Minute Rice has been a family staple since 1949. It is the original instant rice and is the perfect foundation to any well rounded meal. With several gluten free varieties including white rice, 100% whole grain brown rice, and 100 % multi-grain medley, there's an option everyone in your family will enjoy. Plus if you are in a time crunch let Minute Ready to serve rice help you out as it's ready in just 60 seconds!
- Using Minute Rice products you'll spend less time in the kitchen so you'll have more time with the ones you love. (I'd say so if I cook it up in 60 seconds)

The recipe we decided to try tonight for family movie night is Beef and Rice Soft Tacos.
|Don't those Beef and Rice Tacos Look Yummy ! They ARE!!|
You will need:
- 1 Tbsp oil
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 package (1.25 oz) dry taco seasoning
- 2 cups Minute White Rice uncooked
- 8 flour tortillas
- 1 cup cheddar cheese divided ( I used a Mexican blend)
Heat oil in a large skillet. Add your ground beef in and brown until no longer pink. Drain the grease off. Stir in water, salsa and seasoning mix. Bring to a boil. Stir in rice and then cover. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir then spoon ground beef mixture evenly onto tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese and fold tortillas in half.
Options: Omit oil and substitute grilled chicken breast strips for the ground beef
or prepare as directed substituting 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into strips for the ground beef.
We Loved Russell Madness. Mr. Man laughed and laughed definitely a great movie night pick. When that guy laughs I always end up laughing but the movie was really cute and funny so this enjoyed it just as much.
