  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef Could sub in shredded chicken, ground chicken or ground turkey.
  • 1/2 Onion chopped
  • 1 Bell Pepper chopped
  • 15 ounces Black Beans Drained and rinsed. Kidney or Pinto work well too
  • 1 Taco Seasoning Packet Make your own if you wish, just use at least 2-3 tbsp.
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Salsa Your choice here- I like restaurant style.
  • 1 cup Frozen Corn
  • 5 Corn Tortillas Flour Tortillas will also work.
  • 1 cup Mexican blend cheese Any melty cheese will work.
  • 2 tbsp. Diced Jalapeno Optional, adds spice


  1. In a skillet brown the ground beef, onion and bell pepper.

  2. Once browned add in the taco seasoning, beans, water, salsa and frozen corn. Mix together and allow the mixture to thicken and warm through. While that's happening blister your tortillas in dry cast iron pan or over the open flame of a gas stove.

  3. Cut the tortillas into strips and stir them into the mixture.

  4. If the pan you're using isn't oven friendly, transfer it to a dish (I used 11x8 size), top with cheese and diced jalapeno and bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and browned a bit.

  5. Serve in a bowl with lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro and avocado if desired.
