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.

I didn't expect this to be so satisfying. Drained the beans, warmed up the tortillas I filled. Great quick "I hate cooking" recipe.

If I could give it ten stars, I would seriously. I've never cooked mexican before in my life because it's not really a big cuisine here unfortunately (Tacobell used to have outlets across the country and now it's left with only two standing) so yeah I've missed eating out at Tacobell. I used only one can of black beans because my family prefers meat. I think 1 can is sufficient, good enough for the flavour and great for the bite. I also minced two cloves of garlic and chopped up an onion to give it more of a juicy, aromatic bite. Other than that, I followed true to the recipe. The recipe does not mention whether to drain the beans/tomatoes so I followed my gut and drained the beans but I didn't drain the stewed tomatoes, just poured the whole can in. True enough, the remaining tomato juices provided enough moisture for the beef. Wonderful recipe, one that I would make again and again and again! Thank you!!

I just made this for dinner and it was a hit! I added a little bit of Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning for a little extra zip. I served it in a flour tortilla, like a burrito, with sour cream, lettuce, salsa, pickled jalepeno and red onion. I know all the extras add on to the time, but it's worth it. I will be making this again but I may cut it in half since it was really enough to feed at least 6 maybe 8. Thank you for the great recipe!!

I made this tonight for my 2yo and myself - so fast & easy! I changed it slightly by adding 1 c raw rice & 3 c water along with the rinsed beans & tomatoes - we ate it with lots of sour cream & spoons! :) Much easier for DD to eat that way, altho it still would have been wonderful on tortillas with the rice. I also only used 1/2# beef (all I had on hand) and doubled the taco seasoning (Taco Seasoning Mix) for extra flavoring. It was very good, I will definitely make it again!

We liked this! I only used 1 can of black beans, and that was enough. I cooked the meat and drained it and then added the taco seasoning along with the tomatoes, undrained. Rinsed and drained the black beans and let it all simmer for 10 minutes or so. This was good with tortillas, but we liked it even better when scooped up with chips!

I liked the addition of the black beans. It seemed a little dry when I drained the beans so next time I will leave some of the liquid in. Thanks Naner, for posting. Roxygirl
