Easy & Quick dinner -taco & rice bowl/wraps

Dinner taco bowl

Whether you are stretching your dollar or just want a quick dinner this is perfect because you can customize it to your liking.

What you need:

Rice ( I cook 1 cup)

Ground Chicken, Turkey , or beef – I used chicken

Taco seasoning

15oz can of black beans drained ( or kidney/ pinto)

Cheese- I like cheddar


Bell Pepper (optional)  – diced

Onion ( optional) – diced


Other items you could add:

Avocado , Olives, Tomato, Lettuce

even zucchini, or mushrooms


Cook rice according to directions. I like adding some salsa to the rice when its done cooking. Just enough to coat.

If adding the pepper & onion.

Put some oil in a pot. When hot, add onion. Stir for 1-2 minutes. Add pepper. Story for 2 minutes.

Add ground meat. Break up and stir.

Add taco seasoning ( or if you make your own add it to pot) When the meat is almost fully cooked

Stir to coat. Add 1/2 – 3/4 cups of water Stir again

Add black beans. Stir

When done add to a bowl top with cheese & salsa or put mixture in a wrap and enjoy.

Its quick & filling!
