There are two ways I make this. The original recipe was to combine rice and 2 cups water and boil. When cooked, add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1 hour.
More recently, I started just dumping all the ingredients listed above in the crock pot and letting it cook while I was at work. You do not need to cook the rice ahead.
I like to spoon Mock Tacos over tortilla chips and top with lettuce and tomato (sour cream would be great too). My husband prefers to spoon it into a bowl and and scoop it out with tortilla or corn chips. It is also great in shells for tacos or rolled into a burrito.

I don't always have the packages on hand and I can season as I like this way.
Since the most economical way to prepare a meal is to see what you have on hand before starting, we get new recipes all the time. They don't always please us, but this one did. It reminds me of the jalapeno pepper popper things in the frozen food section of the grocery store, except that it has beef added.
Fry meat till done and drain off excess oil. (I like to rinse with hot water). Add remaining ingredients to beef in pan. Cover and simmer on low for 1 hour.
Warm taco or tortilla shells. In a large skillet over medium hot heat, heat oil until hot. Fry turkey and add onion. Cook and stir until meat is done and onion tender. Drain.
