  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot oil until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes; add ground beef and continue to cook while breaking beef into small pieces with a wooden spoon until the beef is completely browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Season beef mixture with the taco seasoning mix.

  • Stir beef mixture, rice, vegetables, kidney beans, 1 cup Cheddar cheese, salsa, and olives together in the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the dish is hot in the center, about 30 minutes.
