Serves: 5
Total Calories: 1,670
Yield: one dozen


1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork sausage
1 pound chorizo pork or beef link sausage, casings removed
2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans chili beans
minced garlic or garlic powder to taste
1 (16-ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (16-ounce) package shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 dozen (10-inch) flour tortillas


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté beef and pork sausage together until browned; drain and set aside in a bowl. In the same skillet, sauté chorizo sausage until browned; drain. Stir in beef mixture, beans and garlic or garlic powder. Cook over medium-low heat for 10 to 20 minutes, stirring often. Add cheeses. Cook, stirring constantly, for another 15 to 20 minutes. Mash lightly with a potato masher; let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. To serve, scoop mixture onto tortillas and roll up.

Tip: Salsa is flavorful, naturally fat-free and tasty on so many more foods than just tacos! Red or green, mild or hot, thin or chunky style...try a spoonful of salsa as a topper for grilled chicken, burgers, hot dogs and even omelets.
