Texas Straw Hat

Nov 14

Do you want an incredibly EASY meal that is full of flavor? Well, this is one of them! I have absolutely no why it’s called Texas Straw Hat besides for the fact that it could look like a straw hat…okay, now, it makes sense why it’s called a straw hat :)

Texas Straw Hat -- Food Ramblings

This recipe was adapted from Southern Plate. I added some additional ingredients for more veggies/protein and used blue corn chips instead of regular corn chips– because I LOVE blue corn chips. We ate this meal like nachos, and then when the chips were gone, we used the fork as a shovel ;) This could absolutely serve 4, but when a meal is so delicious, it sometimes only is able to serve 2, maybe 3. I’m doubling this recipe next time, so we have more leftovers!!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef

  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • blue corn chips

Directions

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and garlic.

Mix in the tomato paste, chili powder, salt, pepper, water, Worcestershire, and black beans. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer for twenty minutes.
