Easy to make! I used turkey burger instead of shredded chicken, mashed pinto beans, in place of the re-fried beans, and added more cheese and rice then called for. Topped with lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, and olives. Over all it tasted good, and even made a great version of a taco salad!

Super easy and tasty. Used "Mexician Rice" from Rice a Roni for some extra flavor. Preferred using it in a burrito than eating it plain. Overall, a hit with the fam.
