This is a good base recipe to start from if you're looking for a delicious vegetarian taco filling.

To start, cook the two cups of rice. There's a perfect recipe for cooking brown rice here (http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Perfect-Brown-Rice) that makes it come out perfect every time.

The recipe is on the bland side, so to make it taste delicious I saute my onions with a can of diced chile peppers (4.25 oz) and an 11 oz. can of Green Giant white chipotle corn (or you can use Mexicorn) and add that into the cooked rice along with the taco seasoning and a can of salsa (16 oz) instead of the diced tomatoes. I also add about 4 oz of Taco Sauce and a can of black beans (rinsed) instead of beef. I use about 1 cup of cheese instead of two. You won't need to simmer it, but I put it in a dish and throw it in the oven to keep it warm. The changes make this recipe delicious when it's otherwise on the bland side.

This was fabulous! I added a can of refried beans to mine and ate it wrapped up in warm flour tortillas with a little cheese. I'd really like this on lettuce as a taco salad too. Great recipe - easy and delicious!

I tripled this to put in the freezer. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use the onion and I used crushed tomoatoes instead of diced. I used brown rice and mexican blend cheese. I took some for lunch today and it reheated nicely. I liked some of the other reviewers ideas and will try this with nachos and in a wrap. I froze in 2 cup containers.
