Taco Slop

Inspired by this recipe. My version:

Taco Slop

1 lb ground beef
1 zucchini diced small
1 can beans (pinto, black, whatever you fancy) rinsed
dried minced onions (or fresh onions)
16 ounce can tomato sauce
1 cup corn
bell pepper (diced small), a red one will go undetected
taco spice (to taste)

Brown ground beef and drain off fat. Add in bell pepper and onion and zucchini, cook until softened. Add in beans and corn and start with 1/2 can tomato sauce and the taco spice. Let it all warm up and add more tomato sauce as needed.

We all thought this was pretty awesome. The kids and Luke ate it in a soft tortilla shell with cheese and a little ranch. For the kids I fold up the bottom of their tortilla, roll the sides inward, secure the folds with a toothpick, and they eat pretty much drip free! I threw it on a bed of lettuce for a great taco salad. Its pretty much like a taco sloppy joe
