    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!

    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.


I live in upstate New York. I am retired and now have time to enjoy my children, my grandchildren and great grandchildren.
