Step 1: Ingredients
Medium sauce pan
Large spoon or spatula
Note: I used ground turkey meat for this instructable which is why I used a little vegetable oil to help brown the meat. I prefer ground beef, but was out. You wouldn't need the oil when cooking ground beef.
Step 2: Cook the rice
The typical ratio is 2:1 water to rice which is where I'd start. 2 cups water to 1 cup rice.
Bring water to a boil and then pour the rice in and cover.
Step 3: Cooking the meat
Following the directions on your package of taco seasoning, add the water (3/4 cup to 1 lb. of meat).
In this instructable, I "eyeballed" my amounts for the sake of having just enough for lunch.
After adding the water, add the contents of your taco seasoning
Stir and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover.
Watch to make sure it's not getting over cooked. If it's already very thick, remove from the heat.
Step 4: Finishing up
Do the same with the meat and then the cheese respectively.
You may now garnish to your liking with sour cream, hot sauce, tomatoes, or salsa.
