Beef and Bean Taco Meat
Serves: 10 (1/2 cup) servings
This versatile recipe could be used as a taco or burrito filling, or a topping for baked potatoes or a salad.
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • ½ cup water
  1. Combine all ingredients in a 6 quart slow cooker and stir well.
  2. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until meat is cooked through and temperature is at least 165 degrees F. Stir occasionally to break meat up into crumbles. Adjust seasonings as needed before serving.
  3. Serve with corn or flour tortillas and your favorite toppings such as shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, avocado and salsa.
You could use ground turkey breast in place of the beef if preferred. Also, any type of bean such as pinto or great northern could be used in place of the black beans.
