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.
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.
This was good for an easy and quick weeknight dinner. Next time I would personally reduce the rice by 1/2. Thanks for posting!
I have made this twice so far. Very easy, simple, tasty, and kid friendly too. I'm always looking for quick weeknight meals aned this is perfect.
I made this recipes on 8/18/09 for mine and SO's dinner. There were a few changes made to recipe, that I don't think affected the end result. The changes are as follows, As the meat was browning, a bit of garlic powder and seasoning salt was added. I used a can of Ro-tel instead of the tomatoes. Also I used Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix for the taco seasoning, instead of store bought. And after reading the reviews, a bit of chili powder was used to " KICK " it up some. I had to let this simmer for about 10 more minutes to get the rice all the way done. Instead of adding the cheese to the whole dish, we just added it to each serving.This is going to be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "
This was pretty good after a couple modifications. I used 1 can mild rotel tomatoes (which I pureed since DH doesn't like chunky canned tomatoes) and 1 cup frozen corn. I served this with a side of tortilla chips (actually doritos). But I was thinking that this mix would be great to make burritos (w/added cheese, lettuce, sour cream and avocados). Next time, I will add more taco seasoning.
This is very good, although it seemed like something was missing. Nevertheless, I like it very much. Next time I think I'll add some raw green onions to it and perhaps some homemade salsa. I really like the "one skillet" idea here. In this dish, I consider the lettuce to be an essential ingredient.
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.
Loved it! I used ground turkey instead of beef, a can of diced fire-roasted tomatoes, and also added a can of diced green chilies. After the liquid was absorbed, I sprinkled on some chopped avocado, then the cheese and lettuce. The only complaint from the family was that I didn't buy tortilla chips to have with it! (I'll make a note of that for the future...) Thanks for a tasty, easy meal.
This was very good and super easy. I didn't use the lettuce because of my dh, but I think that would be good too. We all loved it, kids too. Thanks!
