Taco Rice, It's Mighty Nice!

One place where cultures can be counted on to collide, often with tasty results, is in the vicinity of military communities. Today I experienced one such culinary collision. Taco rice is a delicious combination of the oriental staple, rice, and the tasty import from America's south-of-the-border passion, tacos. The dish has a base of white, sticky rice covered with taco-seasoned beef or chicken, and then topped with shredded cheese and lettuce, chopped onions and tomatoes, and sliced olives - with taco sauce splashed on to taste. The entire thing is put together and served up in a shell like those used for standard taco salads.

Taco rice is simple, yet satisfying - a good example of the benefit of cultural cross-pollination!
