I made this one night while we were camping. PERFECT camping recipe!!! I made the following substitutions: ground turkey instead of ground beef, garlic & sweet onion petite cut tomatoes and Calrose (short grain) rice. I'm going to be making it at home - it's so good! The leftovers are great as a dip with corn chips.

Loved this. Made it for dinner and we really enjoyed it. I doubled everything and used 3 packages of taco seasoning and will definately make again. Thanks for a great, easy meal.

The entire family loved this one. I used 1.5 lbs of ground beef and added a small can it Rotel to spice it up a bit. I also added extra taco seasoning and it have it a little more kick. Super easy.
