1 to 1-1/2 packets of taco seasoning (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 onion, diced
1 (15 oz.) can black beans
1 bottle Catalina dressing (8 oz.)
Romaine lettuce, chopped
Chips of your choice (we like plain tortilla chips or Doritos)
Garnishments of your choice (we like tomato, sour cream, grated cheese, and guacamole)
Saute onion and brown meat. Then drain the meat, add 3/4 cup water, and taco seasoning (we usually use one and a half packages for more flavor). Simmer for about 5 minutes on low.
Then add beans and dressing to desired consistency. I usually end up using about 2/3 of a bottle rather than the whole thing. Don't be afraid to taste test at this point. You may want to add a little more seasoning or dressing. Simmer all together for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Now it's ready to serve any way you like it.
I like to layer it like this from the bottom up: Lettuce, chips, sauce, grated cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and tomatoes. Glen likes to start with his chips at the bottom...so feel free to be daring!
