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.
