Fancy Taco Salad

Shown without sour cream and hot sauce

I have to give a nod to Rachel Ray, since this based on her "Monday Night Football Food Taco Bowls" in her Express Meals cookbook. I needed a quick meal since we were painting and I didn't want to take the time to cook so I opened up Rachel Ray and found this recipe. Mine is slightly different, but I must say -- delicious!

Fancy Taco Salad
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb hamburger
1 can green chilies, drained, rinsed & divided
1 Tbsp onion powder
3/4-1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp chili powder
salt & pepper
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
2 cans petite diced tomatoes, drained & rinsed
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbsp dried cilantro or 1/4 C fresh, chopped
3 Tbsp lime juice
Tortilla Chips
Grated Cheese
Sliced Olives
1 can of corn, drained
Sour Cream
Taco Sauce

1. Heat oil in skillet over med-high heat. Add hamburger, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, 1/2 the chilies, salt & pepper and cook until browned. Add black beans and 3/4 C water and reduce heat to low and simmer until thickened.
2. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, remaining chilies, onion, cilantro and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow to sit.

3. To eat, crush a handful of chips and layer meat mixture, cheese, tomato mixture, lettuce, olives, corn, sour cream, and taco sauce. Enjoy!
