  • Instant rice
  • 1 bag of Fritos
  • 1 block of Cheddar cheese diced
  • Instant beans
  • Taco Seasoning


  • Add at least 12oz of water to stove pot.
  • Pour in beans, rice, taco seasoning, and any other spices at anytime.
  • Cook, ideally to a simmer for about 60 seconds, stirring to avoid boil-over.
  • Cut cheese into dice-sized pieces and add to meal.
  • Add Fritos just before consumption. If added too early, they will soften.
  • For perfect at-home consistency, use 10 oz (300 ml) of water. To prevent burning, do not add beans, rice, and taco seasoning until water is boiling.
