This is the taco meat that my grandma use to make me when I was a kiddo. I make it now for my kiddo, we use it in tacos, burritos, frito pie, nachos, taco salad, and to top tators.

I made this recipe to use on a taco salad. I liked it because it was saucy and not as dry as regular taco meat. I also like the addition of the beans. I will definitely use this recipe again and again. I bet it would be great on a potato or in a burrito. Thanks for posting it! PS I only used a half cup of water and it came out perfect.
