Burrito Bowl Casserole

I don’t know if I should be proud or ashamed that this is the third taco inspired recipe in a row.  I think I have a serious taco problem.  I was originally going to call this taco casserole but doesn’t burrito bowl casserole have a much better ring to it?

The chicken taco stuffed peppers that I made a couple of weeks ago I think were by far the most delicious stuffed peppers that I have ever made. The huz doesn’t love peppers unless they are chopped really small, but even he liked those ones. Because he doesn’t love the pepper but loves the stuffing, I think it is time to experiment with pepper stuffing in the form of rice casseroles. It is almost fall in Minnesota after all.

Given my never faulting love for tacos – obviously a taco casserole was first on the list. Oh wait, I guess I am supposed to call it taco hot dish!
