This recipe is adapted from one of my favorite blogs, Frosted Bake Shop. I have made several of Amy’s recipes and loved them all. I especially love that they are made for real life – quick and easy. I need quick and easy recipes to ease back into my daily routine after the holidays!
I love Mexican/Tex-Mex food. I prefer to eat it at home – I don’t stuff myself silly like I do at the Mexican restaurant. I am always looking for a way to mix up taco nights and this was perfect. It took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. It makes a ton, so we had it two nights.
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 8 oz. cans tomato sauce
- 1 can black beans, drained
- 2 cups cooked white (I used Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice)
- tortilla or corn chips
- your favorite taco toppings – salsa, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, etc
Brown the meat in a skillet and drain off fat (I use a collander). Return the meat to the skillet; add the taco seasoning and water, mix and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, black beans and rice. Heat in skillet for 5 -10 minutes, until heated through. Serve over tortilla or corn chips and top with your favorite taco toppings.
