Ground Beef and Bean Tacos

I haven't been to the grocery store or cooked anything in a while now since there was Hurricane Irene and then a busy Labor Day weekend.  I wanted to make something that would be delicious and relatively quick.  I got the idea to make tacos, which I haven't made in years.  I went to my favorite cooking blog to look for a recipe and found one that I adapted slightly.  I used my own spices as opposed to buying a "taco seasoning" packet so I know exactly what is in there.  We also had my in-laws over for dinner and they enjoyed this dish too! 

Ground Beef and Black Bean Tacos
1 tsp olive oil
1 lb of lean ground beef (I used 90/10)
1 medium white onion, diced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili pwder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 4oz can of diced green chiles
1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
12 flour tortillas
Lettuce, chopped
Mexican Blend shredded cheese

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the ground beef and break up the meat.  Add the onion and all the seasonings.  Stir until all the ingredients are mixed together.  Let it cook 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until meat is cooked through.  Add the black beans and green chiles to the beef mixture and stir until well combined.  Set aside. 

Stack the flour tortillas on a plate.  Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for about 30 seconds, until the tortillas are soft. 

Fill each tortilla with the beef and bean mixture, shredded cheese, lettuce, salsa, and guacamole.

  1. Yum! We love tacos! It sounds like we've both had to learn to make our ouwn Tex-Mex now that we're Jersey Girls.
