Taco Salad


1 lb. Hamburger
1 can Pork and Beans (I use Van Kamps)
1 can Kidney beans (optional)
1 can Tomato Soup (I use Campbell's)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp. Yellow Mustard


BROWN the hamburger. You can add onion if you want, I use onion powder to season since I have an onion allergy.
COMBINE beans, soup, brown sugar and mustard in a casserole dish and mix together. Add hamburger.
STIR well.

MICROWAVE for 6 minutes or until heated through. You can also bake in the oven at 350 F for 15 minutes.

CRUSH tortilla chips onto your dinner plate. ADD meat mixture. TOP with your favorites: tomato, lettuce, cheese, olives, sour cream, etc.


Note: You can double the recipe for the meat mixture and let it sit in your crockpot on low throughout the day.
