1 15-oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
2-3 cups water, depending on thickness you like
2 T. (heaping) taco seasoning
salt and pepper
tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream, to serve
In a large pot, cook beef or turkey with onions and garlic until fully cooked, about 6-7 minutes, stirring regularly. Season with salt and pepper.
Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, corn, chiles, beans, water, and taco seasoning to the pot. Stir until combined, adding more water if desired. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
