    Jessica K's Note:

    I was surprised to find that there is no recipe for this already on here. This was a staple "fast food" to eat after a night of fun in Okinawa. It is a great alternative to taco salad!

      Nice change of pace. I used ground turkey and omitted the oil. I use a non stick pan for frying and often don't use fat. I also added an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, as I found the meat mixture a bit dry. :)

      Fun, quick dinner when you want something a little different from tacos. I topped with all the listed toppings, plus avocado.

      This is a weekly staple in our home. Hubby was in military for 20 years and while living in Japan ate this often.....Great stuff!
