Rice a Roni Dinner

Today we are making Rice-a-Roni dinner. Here is what you will need:

1 pound ground beef
2 small cans tomato soup
2 small boxes or 1 family size box of chicken flavored Rice a Roni
1 cup shredded cheese
5 cups of water

Start out by browning the hamburger.. I don't drain it, but if you do, then you will just have to add the butter that the Rice a Roni box calls for.

After the hamburger is browned, add the rice and vermicelli from the box to your pan and saute until the vermicelli starts to brown

Next, you will add in the 5 cups of water and the seasoning packets from the Rice a Roni box

Bring the water to a boil, then cover and simmer for the 15 to 20 minutes that the box calls for, until the water is absorbed. It will look like this:

Next you will add in the tomato soup and the cheese:

Here is the final product. I put a little extra cheese on the top to make it look fancier for you, but you can leave that out.
