  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 envelope taco seasoning mix

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained

  • 2 tomatoes, diced

  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • 8 ounces sour cream

  • 1 (10 ounce) bag tortilla chips


  1. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until crumbly and no longer pink, about 8 minutes; stir in taco mix and water. Cook beef mixture until thickened, about 10 more minutes.

  2. Place black beans into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  3. Spread 1/4 of the beef mixture on a serving plate and top with 1/4 of the black beans; repeat with remaining beef mixture and beans to make 4 salads. Spread separate layers of romaine lettuce, salsa, tomatoes, and cheese over salads. Generously garnish with sour cream and tortilla chips.
