I’m back!!


Okay everyone,

Sorry about the delay.  It’s been so long that I thought I would just jump right back in with a recipe.  This is something that I made tonight.  It was super super quick and pretty good too.  It wasn’t phenomenal, but it could be tweaked.


2 lbs of ground beef

2 packages of taco seasoning

2 cups water

2 cups quick cook rice, uncooked

1 cup shredded cheddar

tortilla chips

shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, shredded cheese, salsa, and other taco toppings


In a large saucepan, brown ground beef.  Drain if necessary.  Add taco seasoning and water.  Bring to a boil.  Add rice and return to a boil.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until rice is cooked.

Serve with tortilla chips and other toppings.

Fixed as is, this is a little bland.  Maybe a third packet of seasoning or add onions, minced garlic and garlic powder to the beef as it’s browning.  Some crushed red pepper would add some heat. 

Let me know how you like it and how you fixed it!
