Taco Rice

Taco Rice created by Lori Mama

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!

    This was very good and a nice alternative to tacos (especially when you're out of tortillas). I think in the future I will blend the taco seasoning in a blender with some stewed tomatoes to make the meat a little "saucier". Otherwise, for our taste, the salsa is really necessary. I will make this again... thank you!
