A quick and easy lunch or dinner recipe for any day of the week, these taco bowls are filled with seasoned ground beef and rice, topped with roasted jalapeno peppers, diced avocado and tomato, then sprinkled with spicy chili flakes and your favorite hot sauce. Tacos in a bowl!

Quick and easy recipe alert, my friends. We ALL need Quick and Easy Recipes in our life, don’t we? I’ve been super SLAMMED here the last month or so, with rebuilding Chili Pepper Madness with a new, better blogging platform, pitching ideas for another potential screenplay/film project (wish me luck!), and finalizing the copy for my brand new cookbook that is coming out this October, called “The Spicy Food Lover’s Cookbook“.

YES!

Here’s a link to that on Amazon, btw: The Spicy Food Lover’s Cookbook (Affiliate link to my own book – haha!)

No complaints. It’s all GOOD being this sort of busy, and I’m sure you all know what it’s like when you’re slammed like this. It takes time away from good food! No!

Always a downside to everything. The UPSIDE is that recipes like THIS one exist for us for when life is just too wild and crazy.

We’re talking Easy Spicy Taco Bowls, and we’re cooking them up FAST.

These Quick and Easy Taco Bowls are the perfect lunch or dinner.

By fast, I’m talking 5 minutes prep time and 15 minutes cooking time. OK, MAYBE 20 minutes cooking time if you’re a SLOW cook like me, but seriously? That’s pretty easy, and the flavor is AWESOME.

Let’s get cooking!

How to Make Easy Spicy Taco Bowls for Lunch or Dinner – The Recipe

First, boil some water and get your rice simmering according to your rice package directions. It should only take about 15 minutes or so to get nice and fluffy rice. If you REALLY need to save time, use instant rice.

Next, cook up some onion, jalapeno and garlic in a pan with your ground beef until the meat is mostly cooked through and the vegetables are nicely softened, about 5 minutes or so.

Add in your taco seasoning, extra spices and chili flakes, and a bit of water, then let the whole thing simmer about 10 minutes to let the flavors develop, and the moisture to reduce. the beef will cook through. It will leave you with glistening, flavorful seasoned ground beef.

While the meat is cooking, chop your extra toppings – in this case, tomato, avocado, fresh cilantro – and some roasted jalapeno peppers. Learn How to Roast Chili Peppers here.

The quickest way is to set the jalapeno pepper right onto the stove top burner and let the flames char and blacken the skin. Once it is nicely charred, cool a bit then peel off the skin. Then slice them up!

Serve these by piling the rice into bowls, then topping them with the seasoned ground beef and all of your fixings.

Super easy! I love it!

Go for whatever regular taco toppings you’d like. Here is my favorite – Homemade Taco Seasoning Recipe.

If you want cheese, go for it! Sour cream? Yes! Just don’t forget the hot sauce. Absolutely ESSENTIAL. Tacos without hot sauce is…I don’t even want to think about it.
