Every year, our family tries to go on family vacations. We enjoy spending time as a family and seeing new places is always a highlight. However, we have six people in our family. Vacations can get quite expensive. Quickly.
I always look for ways to keep our costs down and one of the ways is to rent a condo or house and prepare our meals there instead of eating out. I know, who wants to cook while on vacation, right?
Well, it isn’t as hard as one would think. The key is to plan easy meals and prepare as much as you can at home before vacation even starts.
One such recipe is Easy Mexican Hamburger and Rice. It only has 5 ingredients (if you don’t count the cheese garnish!) and can easily be prepared while on vacation. This recipe is served over tortilla chips or on a flour tortilla and is filling and delicious!
What makes this hamburger and rice dish so easy is using Success® Boil-in-Bag Rice. There’s no mess involved and the product can be prepared on the stove or in the microwave. When on vacation, no one wants to do a lot of dishes either!

How To Travel With Easy Mexican Hamburger And Rice
It helps to prepare the hamburger at home then take it with you on vacation.
After cooking the hamburger and peppers, let it cool for about 5 minutes then place in a bag and seal it. Make sure the bag is flat. It will travel easily in a cooler though make sure the cooler is at a proper temperature for keeping the hamburger frozen. You could always add more ice as you travel.
Before you leave on your trip, go to Walmart and pick up the Success® Boil-in-Bag rice. I used Success® Boil-in-Bag White Rice and Success® Boil-in-Bag Jasmine Rice in the recipe.

The convenient BPA-free boil-in-bag is ready in just 10 minutes, with amazing rice guaranteed every time. You’ll never have to sacrifice on quality again.
Cook on the stove top for another 3-5 minutes then serve. The easy Mexican hamburger and rice can be garnished with cheese or sour cream. You could also add tomatoes or green onions. Success® Boil-in-Bag Rice makes this meal a cinch.
