My husband's bachelor friend uses this to make a few ingredients go a long way. We use this a for a quick and tasty "Mexican" night at our house. I serve this with flour tortillas, and make quesadillas from this topped with cheese for my toddler. We call it "Mexican" pizza. :)


  1. Brown ground beef with taco seasoning.
  2. Add stewed tomatoes and black beans.
  3. Simmer for 5-10, until black beans heated through.
  4. Serve with tortilla chips or make soft tacos using soft tortillas.

These were quick, easy, and great for a mid-week meal. For the stewed tomatoes, I opted for the kind with garlic in them. I used soft tortillas to serve it in along with some shredded cheese and sour cream.

We enjoyed these tasty tacos. I liked that it made 1 lb of meat go a lot further. Thank you and Larry!

Naner, this saw a really nice basic recipe... I made it exactly as directed, though found it really quite bland. I did not know if I was to drain the beans or not, same with the tomatoes, I did find it a bit loose for tacos but it could be really tasty if I add spices and let it simmer longer. Thank you for posting this I will use it again, with a few changes.
