I used one box mexican rice in place of plain converted rice and equal amounts V-8 tomato juice instead of water. I also used a homemade taco seasoning. I served this with additional taco-type toppings (chopped tomato, sliced olives, chopped red bell pepper, sour cream, salsa, crushed Doritoes) and we made taco bowls. Nice, quick ECONOMICAL dinner. This would make a good filling for mexican stuffed peppers.

It was easy, and the kids enjoyed it. When I do this again, I would add a bit more onion, some bell pepper and garlic while the meat is cooking. It's a good base to start from, maybe some green chiles, corn, olives? Versatile and easy to adapt to what you have on hand. Exactly as written...it's begging to be spiced up.

Good, frugal skillet meal! I doubled the recipe, topped with lettuce, cheese, salsa, guacamole, and corn chips. Kids loved and hubby was pleased. Will definitely make this meal again!
