Ingredients:  
4 c. Prepared Rice,1 to 1 1/2 lb. Meat of Choice,
28 oz. can Crushed Tomatoes, 14 oz. bag frozen Fajita Blend (Peppers & Onions) Or 1 to 2 c. fresh diced, 2 - Taco Seasoning 1.25 oz. envelopes

Directions:
Directions:
Start by preparing approximately 4 cups of cooked rice (typically 2 cups uncooked) in a large pot. Instant rice works fine but does not store as well.

Prepare your choice of meat while your rice is simmering. (Boil chicken pieces and pull off bone or sauté bite-size pieces of steak or pork) The quick, easy, and cheap method is to brown ground beef in a large frying pan. Any combination or use of leftovers would be fine as well.

Add Taco Seasoning, tomatoes, and fajita vegetables to frying pan. When rice is tender add the contents of frying pan to rice pot. (If your frying pan is too small to use this sequence wait and empty the tomato can into the rice pot.)

This recipe as described has no hot spice, depending on the taco seasoning. Spice-it-up or Change-it-up, by using different seasonings. This dish could easily have an Italian or oriental flavor. You could substitute the tomatoes for some type of broth or caned soup.

Personal Notes:
This dish is fast, cost less than 10 dollars, and the kids will eat it. We are talking about a perfect week night, one dish meal that will feed the whole family and then some. Best of all it’s kind of like a soup or stew but it finishes so thick that it is spill resistant. No kidding; you can serve with a slotted spoon. This is a good thing too; in my house, whenever I want to serve soup, I can never find the ladle. My inspiration? Well, you probably don't want to know, but at the risk of turning you off after selling it so well, I'll tell you. I actually set out to duplicate something that I bought out of the vending machine at work, in the interest of creating an easy economical meal. I hope you enjoy it and if you come up with some good variations please let me know.
