Ok, so I made some changes, but I think the recipe is great for doing just that -- making alterations and still coming out ok. My changes? I used 1.25lb ground turkey instead of beef, a can of diced tomatoes instead of stewed, taco seasoning instead of onion soup mix, and fresh corn instead of peas. :) So yeah, I agree, almost an entirely different dish. I wish I had gone with my instinct tho and cut the rice back to at most 1 cup. The meat to rice ratio was off and yes, this makes A TON! We ate it as taco filling or scooped it up with tortilla chips. I froze almost half of it after we finished eating (2 adults, 2 kids), I packed hubby's lunch and I had the rest for lunch.
I think when I make it again, I'll for sure cut back on the rice (water too then, of course) and maybe add a 2nd can of tomatoes. I used a homemade taco seasoning and I may add more of that as well. Give it a try and make it your own! Thanks for the jumping board recipe, Carol!
