I like this recipe a lot because it is eeeeasy -- just some quick cooking and simmering. I liked the healthy fillers like black beans and corn. The best part is the chipotle chiles...I used three and they added a lot of zip! (I halved the recipe which made five good-sized tacos.)
- Cooking spray
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pound ground sirloin (I used ground beef)
- 1 cup 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
PreparationHeat 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.
Serve with your favorite taco toppings: guacamole, sour cream, fresh cilantro, salsa, or sliced green onions.
