- Combine hot rice with lime juice, cilantro and lime zest & keep warm. (Mix everything in the rice pot, put the lid back in until you’re ready to assemble).
- Heat a 10 inch, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, onions and garlic. Cook and stir until beef is cooked through and light browned, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, water and taco seasoning. Mix well & cook until mixture is hot and bubbly. Remove from heat.
- To assemble, equally divide hot rice mixture among 4 serving bowls. Top with hot, spiced beef and toppings of your choice.
