Dallas Tacos

I made this for dinner tonight. It is an old favorite. My mom used to make it and she got the recipe from my grandmother. I don't know why it's called Dallas Tacos, but it's so good and easy that I don't really care. I think it's pretty healthy too. And I love how colorful it is. It's a great summer supper.

Dallas Tacos

2 lbs. lean ground beef
28 oz can whole tomatoes
1 can Ranch style beans
1-2 tsp salt

chopped tomatoes
shredded romaine lettuce
grated cheddar cheese
sour cream
guacamole or chopped avacado

Brown ground beef. Drain well. Puree tomatoes in blender and add to meat. Add beans (don't drain) and salt to taste. Mix well and simmer for about an hour for best flavor. You can shorten this time, but flavor is best the longer you let it simmer.

Arrange fritos on plate. Top with meat mixture and toppings of your choice.
