Not much of a recipe here today, more like a list of ingredients I like to use in my Taco Salad.
one can of black beans, drained and rinsed
one pound ground beef
taco seasoning packet
sliced black olives
shredded cheddar cheese
lightly crushed tortilla chips
Cook the ground beef, drain, add black beans and taco seasoning and a little water. Cook a little more until water is absorbed and beans are warm.
Mix ingredients in portions and proportions as desired.
The ground beef/black bean mixture should make at least 4 servings.
Variation: Instead of salsa and sour cream, use Hidden Valley Ranch Spicy Ranch salad dressing or Newman's Own Southwest dressing or Salsa Ranch (can't remember the brand I found) or Chipotle Ranch (one of those refrigerated brands).
