Growing up in Dallas TX this was the best thing on the public school menu. The lines would be out the door with kids trying to get it. I learned to make it at home and my family has been loving it for decades.

  2. cook your rice according to package directions, warm the Chile con Carne. Dice your tomatoes and green onions. You can buy the lettuce shredded.
