This taco rice recipe is both versatile and tasty! If you want to spice things up with minimal effort, you really need to give this recipe a try.
Taco rice is not only great as a stand alone meal, it also makes a delicious side dish. In addition, it can also triple as a fantastic addition to ingredients you include in a burrito, wrap, etc. You simply can’t go wrong with this dish!
- 3 Cups Rice
- 1/3 Cup Ghee
- 4 Tbsp Taco Seasoning
- Cook white or brown rice via your preferred method.
- When rice is finished cooking and still hot, add 1/3 cup of ghee and blend well.
- Then add 4 Tbsp taco seasoning and blend well. Taste. If you want more flavor, add more seasoning.
- Note: If you plan to use this as an ingredient in a burrito, wrap, or taco, you may want to add up to 7 Tbsp of taco seasoning.
If you want to make this as a main dish, it’s always a hit to include additional ingredients that can be mixed into the rice.
Some good additions are black olives, chopped tomatoes, cheese, avocado, chopped onions, sour cream, cilantro, tortilla chips (like Paqui), and shredded chicken.
I recommend Savory Spice taco seasoning. You can order it online, most of their stuff is gluten free, and their blends are superb.
My favorite rice is brown Basmati rice. It has a great flavor and of course it’s less processed than white rice, making it a little healthier.
It’s always a good idea to eat certified gluten free rice. It’s very common for grains to be stored and transported together, and thus be cross-contaminated with gluten.
Rice is a great grain for celiacs to use in dishes, since many celiacs can tolerate it pretty well. Of course, if you have a prolamin sensitivity, it could be problematic for you. But of all the grains, rice gives celiacs fewer issues than the other grains out there.
