Taco Rice

One of my favorite discoveries in Okinawa is Taco Rice. While it sounds like it would be a Mexican dish, it is actually a Japanese dish that is very popular here in Okinawa.  Delicious!

1 lb ground beef
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pack taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
6 servings rice (I use brown Minute Rice)
2 cups shredded cheddar
lettuce, cut into bit sized pieces
tomato, diced
sour cream

Stir fry ground beef in vegetable oil. Drain.
Cook rice according to package directions.
Add taco mix and water. Heat over low until water is evaporated. Mix in about 1 cup of shredded cheese and let melt over low heat.
Put meat mixture on top of rice. Top with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream.
