Knorr's Mexican Rice and Beef Tacos

This is a very quick and easy weeknight dinner idea using ingredients I typically have on hand, and a Knorr's Fiesta Sides™ - Mexican Rice package. This month for my AllRecipes AllStar assignment I had the privilege of working with Knorr's easy and tasty rice side dishes!

I really liked the way the meat and rice mixture came out - it was hard to not just sit and eat it with a spoon at the stove... which I didn't... much. My son wants this mixture as nachos tonight for dinner, and I think it would make a fantastic rice casserole dish with some tortilla chips served on the side.
