how to make a taco bowl-

RICE- Cook the rice using whatever method you like best. We like to bake our rice, the best method for cooking rice.

MEAT- While the rice is cooking. Cook the meat using our recipe Taco Meat Recipe.

VEGETABLES- Finely slice the onion. Cube the tomatoes. Slice or cube the avocado. TIP: The corn can be served cold OR for best results saute it with a dab of butter and season with Vegeta if you have it, SO GOOD!

BOWL- You can totally personalize the bowl to whatever you like but this happens to be my favorite way to serve it and my favorite ingredients.

Add the warm rice to a bowl and drizzle with lime or lemon juice. Top with the warm meat. Then add all your favorite helpings, I like to add corn, tomato, avocado, cheese and sour cream with hot sauce or Sriracha. Drizzle lime or lemon juice over everything.

BUFFET STYLE- This recipe is great to serve buffet-style at the table. Add all of the helpings to individual bowls and allow your family to personalize their bowl. Yes, it will be a bit of a mess but so ENJOYABLE!

How to prepare a taco bowls with ground beef, corn, avocado, tomatoes, cheese and rice.

can I prepare everything in advance?

Though this recipe is SUPER easy, you still need to saute the meat and cook the rice. If you like to have food prepped before the kids come home from school and just reheat before dinner, do so. Bake the rice and cook the meat ahead of time, keep refrigerated. Then, before dinner, while the rice and meat is reheated, just chop the veggies and dinner is ready to be served.
