Description

My mother-in-law has been making this for as long as my husband can remember, and I am just now starting to make it to her standards! (After 8 years!)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1 package (1 Oz. Packet) Taco Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Rosemary
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt
  • 2 pinches Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Rubbed Sage
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme
  • 2 cans (16 Oz. Can) Your Favorite Chili With Beans
  • 1 jar (24 Oz. Jar) Spaghetti Sauce
  • 2 cups Cooked Rice (Brown Or White)
  • 1 bag (9 Oz. Bag) Fritos Scoops

Preparation

In a large pot or Dutch oven, brown the ground beef. Once all pink is gone, add in the taco seasoning. Stir to combine and cook for about 2 minutes so the flavor can incorporate. Add in the garlic, rosemary, salt, pepper, sage and thyme. Next add the cans of chili (homemade works too!) and stir to combine. Begin adding the spaghetti sauce; you don’t want the mixture to be too saucy so add a little at a time. Turn heat to a simmer and finish adding sauce if necessary.

In the meantime, cook the rice if you haven’t already.

Let the meat mixture simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes, enough time for all the flavors to meld. Continue stirring so it doesn’t stick to the bottom.

When the rice is finished, pour a plateful of Fritos. Sprinkle rice on top of the chips, and follow with generous spoonfuls of meat mixture. At this point you can top it with things like shredded cheddar, tomatoes, olives, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, whatever your heart desires!

I recommend keeping a fork nearby. Enjoy!

We were running a flu shot clinic at a local sr. citizens center when they had this for lunch. That was the first time I’d had it or heard of it and it was perfect for that venue and delicious and EVERYONE was enjoying it! It would make for a perfect pot luck recipe too – just have people sign up for a component. I especially enjoyed the sweet additions like coconut, diced pineapple, etc. Very easy to individualize a plate. YUM!
