To begin, take out a small pot and fill with 1 cup of water and put in on high heat. Once the water begins to boil, add rice and olive oil. Turn down to medium heat and cover with a lid. Let boil for 10-15 min. Stir often. If the rice is still hard once the water has evaporated, continue to add gradual small amounts until it is fluffy and soft.

In a frying pan, add meat and turn on medium heat. Add a taco seasoning or season to your liking using garlic powder, paprika, cumin, turmeric, lemon and chili powder. Stir seasoning in well and mix until the meat is fully cooked through.

On the side prepare your chopped lettuce, guacamole (using the recipe above or buying store bought), strain black beans, and grate cheese. Once the rice if fully cooked, add in finely chopped cilantro and lemon juice. Build your “Taco” to your liking adding your choice of toppings and enjoy.
