I gave this 3 stars. This got mixed reviews in my house. My 6 yr old newphew didn't like it. My 8 yr old niece and 4 yr old newphew ate this right up (even though my niece doesn't like beans). I thought this was ok, it was lacking flavor I think I'll add more taco seasoning next time. My future hubby had 2 bowls and said he liked it. I served ours with additional cheddar, crushed corn chips, sour cream and mild salsa. Overall I'll make this again for sure! Thanks for posting a good recipe! Christine (internetnut)

Quick and yummy meal! I added some chopped onion when I browned the meat. Mine got pretty dry after I added the instant rice. I had to add another almost 1 cup of water in addition to the 2 cups listed. I topped this with sour cream and cilantro. The kids (especially the "baby" really enjoyed this. Thanx for sharing your creation. I'm sure that I'll make this again; just adding additional liquid.... and maybe even a can of Rotel.

This was great and very easy to put together while we were on a camping trip. I forgot to pack the rice, but there was plenty of food without it! I added a few cherry tomatoes to the mix and added some of the salsa right into the skillet. Thanks for sharing!
