Build Your Own Mexican Feast

I thought I would share this one a little early. I won’t forget our Real Food Thursday though and I will have something for you then too.
Build Your Own Mexican  Feast

There is no need to save this recipe for just Cinco de Mayo. In fact we do some form of make your own burrito, taco, tostado. Well you get the idea. With all the different dietary requirements in our house. Build your own is a great solution in a house where you have dietary issues or just plain picky eaters.  This recipe can be altered for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free. That is why we love build your own so much

1 lb. ground beef (grass-fed from our favorite rancher).
1lb frozen corn
Freshly shredded cheese –(my family likes Monterey Jack) about 4 oz.
Can of organic diced tomatoes (good tomatoes are not in season here yet)
Can of refried black beans
Optional  pepper, onions, cilantro.( not shown here because they were not available at the time)
brown the beef – the blurriness is actually the heat rising from the pan

Pan roast the corn. (if using peppers and onions I like to roast them here)

Assemble with  refried black beans, tomatoes, roasted corn, and any other optional ingredients you have. Serve over toasted corn tortillas . Eat and enjoy.

Yum! My kids love 'self assemble' food. Does pan roasting the corn mean just constant stirring on a high heat? And do you toast the tortillas in the pan too? And are they corn tortillas?

I'm going to make this this week :)

To pan roast the corn I put it in a cast iron skillet. Heat the skillet first and add the corn. In this case the corn is frozen. I cook on high heat until I hear it start to pop.

For the tortillas I heat them in a skillet too or on my cast iron griddle pan. I get more on there.

Let me know how yours turns out and how the family likes it.
