Recipe: Southwest Bean Skillet

I found this recipe on Pinterest of course last week and was determined to put my spin on it for a dinner this week.  What I loved most of it was how colorful it looked.  I changed a few things from the original recipe which you can find here.


1 can corn (or 1 cup frozen)
2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 can chili bean in sauce, undrained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded cheese
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1lb. ground beef

  1. Brown ground beef in skillet with chili powder.  Set aside.
  2. In large skillet, add remaining ingredient except for tomatoes and cheese.  Heat to boil then reduct heat.  Cover and simmer 5 minutes.
  3. Uncover and simmer additional 5-10 minutes.  Add ground beef and mix together.
  4. Stir in cheese and tomatoes until cheese is melted.
  5. Serve with taco chips on side if desired :)
