Mad Taco Salad Skills

For this recipe adventure I will begin with the taco seasoning I found on the internet somewhere and have now lost the link to:

1 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

For ours I used about half of the yield.  The rest can be stored in a container in the cupboard.

Other ingredients:

1 lb of hamburger
1 can of black beans
lettuce (we used romaine)
sour cream
cheese (you don’t need very much.)

Brown the hamburger, put in half the taco seasoning, 1/2 cup of water, and the black beans.  Let that simmer and reduce.  Once that’s ready.  Put some lettuce in a bowl, meat, salsa, sour cream, and cheese on top.  The only real pointer I have for it is that you should probably rinse the beans a few times to get rid of their weird can liquid.  That’s really about it.  It’s tasty, filling, has some fiber, not many carbs and tastes delightful.  We plan to add this into our rotation of the good recipes.  This includes the enchiladas and the chicken salad.
