Dixon Farms: Beef Tacos

It has been quite a few warm days around here lately so I have been designing meals that require very little cooking.  Beef tacos are always on my list because they only take a few minutes on the stove top.  Dixon Farms ground beef is the star of this quick and easy meal, this week, I only had one pound of ground beef left, so I had to throw in a few black beans to the mix.  Feel free to use all ground beef if you have enough.

fresh lettuce
diced pepper
sliced green onions
fresh cilantro
salsa
guacamole
taco shells or nachos
cheese

Start by browning your beef in a non-stick pan over medium heat.  After a few minutes, add your beans and begin to slightly mash the beans with the back of a large spoon.  Pour in your tomatoes and taco seasoning.  Continue cooking for another 5-10 minutes until the liquid from the tomatoes begins to thicken the mixture.

Top your tacos with your choice of toppings and enjoy!
