Taco Rice

It’s here! My easy taco rice recipe that you have been asking for. It’s super easy to make and only takes around 15 minutes from start to finish! Feel free to add vegetables like capsicum, onion, chili, etc. I didn’t add anything extra because I have fussy kids that would just pick it out anyway.

What I love about this recipe is just how easy it is to make! You literally chuck it all in the pan, stir and let it cook. I’d love to know what you think of it when you make it. I use this same recipe as a filling for my chicken burritos and as a side when we have soft tacos. This recipe is freezer-friendly and defrosts just fine.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups rice
  • 2 taco seasoning packets
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • Toppings – sour cream and avocado

Directions

  1. Fry rice, tomato paste and taco seasoning in a hot pan for 5 minutes, stirring so the rice doesn’t burn.
  2. Add chicken stock, cover and bring to the boil.
  3. Once boiled, turn down to a low heat and simmer with the lid on until rice is cooked (around 10-15 minutes).
  4. Add more liquid if rice is too dry or not fully cooked. You want the rice to be light and fluffy, so don’t overcook.
  5. Top with grated cheese and toppings.
  6. Serve straight from the pan.
