Tips for Making this One-Pot Beef Taco Rice:
- I use a large 12 -inch non-stick skillet with a lid. This is similar to the one I have and I use it all the time!!
- Don’t keep checking the rice! Let it do it’s thing and cook for a solid 20 minutes on a low fire before you check it. Sometimes, long grain rice can take longer if you use that. You may want to add a little more water (about 1/3 cup) and put the lid back on to cook a little longer if it’s not done after 20 or 25 minutes.
- Want it spicy? Use HOT Rotel and add in some Pepperjack cheese. You can also cook in some diced jalapenos when you brown your onions.
