Tex-Mex Beef Tacos

14 Apr

Derek has been wanting to add more muscle-building protein into his diet so I’ve been looking for recipes that contain both meat(s) and beans.  We topped these with sour cream and tomatoes and they were very tasty.


  • Cooking spray
  • 1  cup  chopped onion
  • 2  garlic cloves, minced
  • 1  pound  ground sirloin
  • 1  cup  frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1  (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1  (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1  to 3 drained canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 10  (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion, garlic, and beef; cook 6 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble beef. Stir in corn and next 6 ingredients (corn through chiles). Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Warm tortillas according to package directions. Spoon 1/2 cup beef mixture into each tortilla.
