A fun, filling alternative to the wimpy taco, this meal has the makings of a do-it-yourself buffet and is a great way for even my littles to help prepare their own supper.
- tortillas (I normally use flour tortillas, but tonight we used corn. Both work great!)
- taco seasoning
- ground beef
- refried beans
- black beans
- cooked rice
- shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
- taco sauce or salsa
- sour cream
Brown hamburger with onion. Add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions. Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Fry tortillas in oil, about 20 seconds on each side. Drain on a paper towel. Load the tortilla with your favorite toppings!
Tip: We like to mix the refried beans and taco meat together to eliminate an assembly step and to help stretch the meat. If you keep them separate, spread the beans on before the meat. Much easier to spread that way.
Other tasty toppings:
- sliced olives
- sliced green onions
