Let's be honest . . . there are lots of yummy dessert recipes on our blog, but we know how important it is to eat healthy and watch our intake. I LOVE Mexican food and came across this recipe from Recipes to Run On and knew that I needed to try it. It looked big on flavor, but lower on calories, so I made it last week and it was a HUGE hit with my family. It was super easy to throw together and was ready in no time! My 2 year old little boy had THIRDS, which never happens. I would give this 5 out of 5 stars- I will be making this again in the near future!!
1/2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 Onion, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 lb. extra lean ground beef or ground turkey
3 TBSP Taco Seasoning
1 can Black Beans, drained
1 cup Salsa
2 cups Shredded Fat-Free or Reduced-Fat Cheese
Other toppings to taste - I used tomatoes, fat free sour cream, and shredded lettuce
In a large skillet, heat oil and add onion and garlic - saute for about 5 minutes until soft. Add meat and taco seasoning, cooking until meat is browned. Add beans and salsa. Mix well and cook to thicken.
Line the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with tortilla chips. Gently press down the chips to break into bite-sized pieces. Spread the meat mixture over the chips. Top with cheese. You could also add jalapenos or green chilies as well.
Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling.
