Easy Recipe for dinner!

Friday I came up with a great easy alternative to tacos.

I cooked the hamburger meat with the usual seasoning and spices (I use my own, don't by the packaged seasonings) and added 1 can drained black beans to it. I also stirred in 1/2 cup salsa to the mix. I put a layer of stale tortilla chips in a 9x13 pan, then put the meat on top, then covered with shredded cheese. I put that in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Next I chopped up lettuce very finely, diced some tomatoes, and chopped a few green onions. When I took the pan out of the oven, I topped with lettuce, tomatoes, dollops of sour cream all over, green onions and then sliced black olives. Now we could just scoop it and put it on our plates. I served it with extra sour cream and salsa. An almost one dish meal :) We had homemade chocolate pudding for dessert too.

This is also good reheated, although we ate 2/3 of it that night. So no pictures sorry :)

Yep even reheating stale tacos without any additions can salvage those things and make them taste fresh again. Sounds yummy.

That sounds sooo yummy! I'm going to have to try it sometime. I love quick, easy meals! Tonight we're having homemade pizza with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. We'll see how it turns out! ;-)
