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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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.
