If we’re talking about convenient ideas for dinner, you will definitely like this recipe for Tacos with beef, rice, peppers and parsley, not only because of how quick it is to prepare them, but also because you’ll get a very tasty meal, and as customizable as your taste might like.
I believe that for most of the people it’s a daily feat trying to figure out about options for dinner, especially when you have kids. We eat rice quite frequently around here, but usually as a side for a meat. And this time I wanted to use this exquisite Uncle Ben’s® Long Grain & Wild Rice, Original Recipe, which is extremely easy to prepare, and after the 20 minutes it takes to cook you’ll get a very delicious rice, which was perfect for me to add to my tacos. In addition, while the rice is cooking, you can prepare the rest of the fillings to be used for the tacos. In short, in just about 20 minutes you can have your dinner ready!
In this occasion, in aisle 7 of our neighborhood Kroger, I found the exact type of rice that I was looking for, as well as other varieties of Uncle Ben’s® flavor.
As you can see in the photos, the preparation process of “Uncle Ben’s® Long Grain & Wild Rice, Original Recipe” is very easy and quick to make, plus it comes with a seasoning packet inside the box, which will give all that exquisite taste to this rice.
I made a simple preparation in a frying pan, using some ground beef that I seasoned with salt, ground pepper, hot pepper (optional), oregano, and also some cherry tomatoes. I used this beef mix as the base for my tacos, and then I added the rice and remaining ingredients.
