This is a great quick and easy dish. I have a lot of hamburger that I need to use up in the freezer. Wanted something a little different, but easy to make. This fit the bill. I made a taco salad with it for me using a tortilla shell and shaped it in a bowl, and put in microwave for 1 and a 1/2 minutes, atop a bed of lettuce. Every one else wrapped it in tortilla shells. Even the finicky kids who don't like rice liked it, and ate the leftovers for lunch the next day. Thanks so much for posting. I will be putting this on my rotation dinner menu.
Good stuff! Wrapped this mixture in flour tortillas and had a great lunch. Thanks!
