  • 1 (lb) lean ground beef (93/7)
  • 1 package (1 oz) taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can (10 oz) enchilada sauce or
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 6 taco sized flour tortillas (or 3 burrito sized) cut into 1" strips
  • 2 cups shredded mexican blend cheese
  • cilantro and sour cream for garnish (optional)


  • In a medium skillet, cook ground beef until there is no longer any pink showing; 7-9 minutes. After beef is cooked, drain fat completely and return beef to the pan.
  • To the beef add taco seasoning, water and enchilada sauce (make my homemade enchilada sauce if you like). Continue to cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until mixture begins to thicken.
  • Reduce to a low heat setting and add black beans, corn and tortilla strips. Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, stirring gently.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over top of the dish and stir in just long enough for it to melt.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately with any garnishes of your choice.
