Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 cups cooked white rice preferably leftover rice
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 lb. ground beef 80% lean
  • 1/2 pouch 1/2 oz. taco seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Sprinkle the salt over the cooked white rice. Using a large spoon, gently toss the rice to distribute the salt equally and to avoid the rice from forming.Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat the cooking oil in a pan.
  • Once the oil becomes hot, put-in the ground beef and cook until it turns light to medium brown (3 to 5 minutes).
  • Pour-in the water and then mix-in the taco seasoning. Stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes or until the liquid evaporates.
  • Add-in the rice. Toss once in a while using a flat spatula. Make sure that you DO NOT press the rice with the spatula as the rice can stick with each other -- we want out rice to be as loose as possible.Continue to cook for 5 to 8 minutes in medium heat.
  • Transfer to a serving plate. Top with chopped parsley.
  • Serve. Share and enjoy!
