Taco Tuesday Casserole

  • ½ cup long grain brown rice
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained
  • 1 (1.25-ounce) packet gluten-free taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat
  • Optional toppings: sour cream - shredded cheese


  • Use a 4-quart slow cooker. Place the rice into the bottom of the slow cooker insert and add the entire can of tomatoes with juice and the drained kidney beans. Top with taco seasoning and stir in water. Add stew meat.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or on high for about 4 hours. Your casserole is finished when the rice has become bite tender – it’s okay if it breaks in half. Serve in wide-mouthed bowls with a spoonful of sour cream and a handful of shredded cheese, if desired.

    Can you ground turkey meat instead of the beef stew? I can’t have beef.

      Hi Vanessa,
      Yes, you could use ground turkey!

    What a great method! What kind of taco seasoning do you use?

      McCormick is typically easy to find gluten free, so that’s the one I’d suggest.
