Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Tickled Pink

Ingredients:

1 lb ground turkey or beef

1/2 onion, diced

2-3 Tbsp. taco seasoning (or 1 package)

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 lime, juiced (or 1/8 cup bottled)

1/2 cup salsa

1/2 cup fresh cilantro (minced)

*1/4 cup dried if fresh is not available

Tortilla chips (your preference)

 

Garnishes:

Chopped tomatoes, onions or green onions, avocados

Sliced black olives

Shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese

Sour cream

Taco sauce

Directions:

Brown hamburger and onion in skillet over medium-heat high. Combine salsa and seasoning (and dried cilantro, if using) and mix into meat, turning heat down to a simmer. Add lime juice.  While meat and seasoning simmer and thicken (add water if it becomes too thick for your liking, chop garnishes and set out in individual bowls for service. Add fresh cilantro just before you transfer the meat from skillet to a serving dish.

Spread chips on a plate (either whole or crush, your choice), spread cheese, meat, and preferred garnishes. Top with sour cream, taco sauce, or both and enjoy!

Variations:

Use hard shells or corn/flour tortillas as the base.

Vary your tortilla chip flavor (Tostitos’ Hint of Lime is a favorite for us)

Substitute rice for meat for a vegetarian option.

Add a can of kidney beans.

Cut top off of individual bags of Doritos, crush the contents, and have guests spoon toppings into the bag (á laWalking Tacos).
