Greeting! Today’s dish is what happens when you leave a crucial item off of a shopping list – in this case taco shells. While I first debated attempting to make my own shells, I then realized a much safer option would be forgetting about the shells and going for the taco version of a burrito bowl. I used the usual cast of characters when it came to the taco “filling” and then tossed it all with some rice for a simple bowl of delicious. As an added bonus the jalapeno came from my own garden, tho sadly I can not claim the tomatoes since this year I only have the cherry variety going – but maybe next year!
Sometimes it pays off to forget something as now I have a new quick dish that has all the taco taste – just minus the shells. Plus it uses up random scraps of food that might otherwise have been thrown away, which is a HUGE positive in my opinion. The taco rice can be topped with avocado, sour cream, cheese, or salsa – whatever your taste buds desire!
Note: Saying extra prayers today for all the family and friends who lost loved ones in the horrible attacks 13 years ago. I’ve written before about my own experience before here for anyone interested.
