Beef Taco Rice Skillet

Easy one dish meal.  It says that it serves 5, but we thought it was easily enough for 6 large servings.

Beef Taco Rice Skillet
1 lb lean ground beef
1 envelope taco seasoning (or 1 oz bulk taco seasoning)
1 ½ cups water
1 cup salsa
1 cup frozen corn
1 ½ cups uncooked instant rice
3/4 cup shredded taco-seasoned cheese
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 medium tomato, chopped

Cook beef until brown; drain.  Stir in taco seasoning, water, salsa and corn.  Heat to boiling, stir in rice.  Boil 1 minute; remove from heat.  Cover; let sit 8 minutes.  Fluff mix with fork; sprinkle cheese.  Cover; let stand 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts.  Sprinkle lettuce around edge of skillet; sprinkle tomato in circle next to lettuce.  Serve with sour cream.
