Taco Salad

We had this for dinner last night and I was reminded how much I like this simple dinner.

1 lb ground beef
1 can black beans
1 can kidney (or pinto) beans
1 can corn
Liberal amount of Taco Seasoning

Brown the beef until fully cooked (I then rinse the meat under running water leaving a little water in the pan), then add the rinsed beans, drained corn and taco seasoning. Allow to simmer until heated through and slightly thickened.

Serve with the following (toppings optional depending on your own taste and what you have on hand):

Crushed tortilla chips
Shredded Cheese
Green onions
Avocado or Guacamole
Sour cream
Ranch dressing

I usually layer tortilla chips on the bottom with meat/beans then cheese then lettuce on top with the other various toppings after that. But really it doesn't matter what order you do it in because the best way to eat it is all mixed up.
