Mexican Cheesy Enchilada

During our college days, Kevin and I survived on Hamburger Helpers. It's the best ever :P So easy to make and it's really cheap. These days, we don't really make much Hamburger Helpers anymore but there are a few flavors that will always remain as our favorites. The Mexican Cheesy Enchilada is one of them. We had some for dinner a while ago, yummy, fast and easy to make. Here's how to make it!

Start off by browning about 1lbs of lean ground beef in a skillet. Once it's brown, drain away all the excess fat.

Now, we need to make the sauce. Pour in the powdered sauce mix into 2 1/4 cups of hot water and mix. It's that easy!

Next, add in the uncooked rice to the skillet.

Then, pour in the sauce mix.

Once you have done that, pour in about 1 cup of milk. Mix all the ingredients together and heat it until it goes to a boil.

Once it reaches a boil, reduce the heat and allow it to simmer for about 25 minutes. Stir occasionally until the rice is tender.

Now we will prepare the cheesy topping. Just stir in about 3 tablespoons of milk to the topping mix. Stir it until it becomes smooth and allow it to rest for about 1 minute.

Once the rice is done, remove the skillet from the heat and pour the cheesy topping over the rice.

With that, the Mexican Cheesy Enchilada is done! I served it with some crushed tortilla chips on top. It's really yummy and so easy to make. Viva La Hamburger Helper!! :P
