What Gobles Gobble part 2

Taco_rice... such a simple concept I can't believe I hadn't hought of it before... Steve's co-worker Kevin used to bring it to work and Steve tried it at a Pot-luck and loved it. Taco rice is the national dish of Okinawa where Kevin's wife is from! I love it because its simple quick it has all of the components of a taco you just serve it on rice instead of a tortilla here's the basic recipe run down this will make 2 generous dinner portions and leftovers for Steve's lunch... :) the amounts of cheese and vegetables are approximations.
1 lb ground beef/turkey
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 small tomato chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup fine chopped lettuce
4 1/2 cups steamed rice
Cook the rice the way you normally would
Brown the meat and mix in the taco seasoning according to the recipe on the pkg.
chop your tomatoes and lettuce and shred your cheese
Layer in a bowl rice then meat cheese top with lettuce and tomato and eat unless your Steve then you need a few dribbles of hot sauce first...
