Beef and Bean Taco Filling

Beef and Bean Taco Filling

I made this for dinner last night as tacos and they were so good and so quick and easy. The best part is that each serving is only 4 grams of fat and thanks to the beans, tomato sauce and salsa you get a great source of vegetables and fiber too! Enjoy over a lowfat tortilla or bed of lettuce for a delicious healthy meal. Not interested in saving calories? Use as a base for nachos, load up and enjoy!

1/2 lb lean ground beef (turkey or veg crumbles)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 8 oz tomato sauce
1/2 cup prepared salsa
1 taco packet
1/3 cup water
desired shells and toppings

In a large pan, brown meat - rinse and drain. Return to heat and add remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and simmer over low heat 15 minutes. Serve in shells, over lettuce or nachos. Enjoy!
