This was very good! I used brown rice, extra-lean ground beef (97% lean, I think), and light sour cream. This was popular with the whole fam. I put everything in separate bowls on the table, and everyone could dish up as much rice, meat, and toppings as they wanted. I will definitely make this again. Add whatever toppings you want; be creative!
Taco Rice is actually a Japanese dish, surprisingly! Actually, it comes from Okinawa. Check out this Wiki article.
(Update 3/18/2013: I've made this many times since I first posted it, and my whole fam loves this. I took new photos last time.)
from Penzey's Spices
2-4 cups cooked rice (I used brown)
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
2-4 Tablespoons taco seasoning
3/4 cup water
shredded Cheddar cheese
sliced black olives
1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef or turkey and cook for 5-10 minutes or until nice and browned, breaking it up into chunks and stirring to brown all sides. Add the taco seasoning, cook, stirring, for a minute. Add water, stir to combine, reduce heat to medium, and cook 8-10 minutes until most of the water has been cooked away but mixture is still saucy.
2. Serve the taco meat over rice, and top with any and all desired toppings. Enjoy!
