Served as the main dish at our family reunion buffet, this flavorful layered taco-style dish is a crowd-pleaser. Folks are pleasantly surprised to find a rice layer, and everyone enjoys the creamy cheese sauce. —Jill Steiner, Hancock, Minnesota
Are Mexican-style entrees popular at your house? You'll appreciate the convenience of this seasoned meat that's tasty in traditional tacos. Since you brown all the ground beef at once, you save time and cleanup when using the leftovers.
Try these tempting tacos when you're looking for a change of pace from regular tacos. A mild zing from the lime juice in the marinade for the chicken comes through after grilling. I like to serve them with salsa, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

My mother-in-law came across this recipe while studying home economics in college. We have always celebrated birthdays and special occasions with these tacos. Radishes and peas are unique additions.—Anita Byars, Geff, Illinois
When our youngest daughter was in Sunday School, the students put together a cookbook as a fund-raiser. Tis was one of the recipes included. It solves the problem of eating messy tacos by combining all the ingredients in a bowl.—Fay Miller, Denham Springs, Louisiana
