One Pan Tacos

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
2 cups water
1 pkg Taco seasoning mix
2 cups instant rice, uncooked
1 cup shredded cheese
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups chopped tomatoes

Brown meat in a large non-stick skillet, drain. Add water and seasoning mix, stir to blend. Bring to a boil. Stir in rice. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover with a tight fitting lid and turn off heat. Let sit 5 minutes or until water is absorbed by rice. Serve lettuce and tomatoes on the side.

These can be served in taco shells, wrapped in tortilla or served as it is. I like to top mine with sour cream and extra shredded cheese. You can add chopped onions and peppers for more taste.
