I serve this as a build-your-own taco salad meal. Start with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, shredded cheddar, and crushed tostada chips. Top off with the piping hot meat mixture, kinda toss together, and enjoy!

This turned out real well, I used left over chuck roast instead of ground beef, but as a friend says beef is beef. I don't use instant rice so I used Jasmine rice and instead of cooking it in the skillet I prepared as directed on the package and added to the skillet after I cooked it. I only used 1/2 cup of water and 4 oz of tomato paste.Once I added the cooked rice this dish tightened right up and was a perfect texture. The meat was melt in your mouth tender and the flavor was full and savory. No real heat in the spice so even people that can't or don't tolerate hot and spicy can enjoy this dish. Read More

Way too much water. I simmered on high for 20 minutes without lid in order to get some of the liquid to evaporate. Also felt the amount of water diluted the flavor a bit. . Made the meat into burritos and saved the day by adding home made refried beans and cheddar cheese. Topped with lettuce , sour cream and homemade tomato salsa. Read More
