Taco Rice

I love to cook rice in the pressure cooker.  I have learned recently taking a class on grains, that if you soak your rice 8-12 hours, you can cut your time pressuring by half.  And it makes really good tasting rice. We made this recipe while Dylan and Karly were here for a couple of days one night for dinner and they loved it.  In fact, we fed the Missionaries Taco Rice last night and they also loved it.  One Missionary's comment: "I think I will made Taco's from now on with rice instead of tortillas", and the other Missionary had 2 helpings.  But with Missionaries you can't judge if a recipe is good or not, as they will eat anything.

Taco Rice:

2 cups cooked rice (We used the Orgainic Harvest Medley from Cosco).  Soak all day 1 cup rice to 1 1/2 cups water.  Rinse and drain and put in pressure cooker with 1 1/2 cup water and 1/4 tsp. salt.  Pressure for 10 minutes, release.  Drain extra water off.  Extra rice you can keep in the refrigerator or freeze and use in salads or with fish.

1 lb. ground beef or turkey
2-3 Tb. Taco seasoning
1/4 cup water.
Brown ground beef or turkey until nice and brown and fully cooked, add taco seasoning and water, simmer for about 2 minutes.

Optional Toppings:
Refried Beans
Shredded Lettuce
Shredded Cheese
Chopped Onion
Sliced Black Olives
Diced Avocado
Sour Cream
