Black Bean & Rice Tostado (or Tacos)

1 lbs ground beef
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1 can corn, drained
1 - 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (left over?)
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 cup salsa (I use blak bean & corn salsa)
tortilla shells

toppings (optional):
sour cream

Brown ground beef in frying pan & drain. Add beans, corn, rice, salsa and taco seasoning (don't mix with water) to ground beef. Mix well.

For tostados: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slightly brush both sides of tortilla shells with oil or spray with cooking spray, place on cookie sheet. Bake for 10 mins or until slightly crisp & browned. Tpo with mix & other toppings.

For tacos: roll in tortillas (don't bake) just like a normal taco.

These are really easy to make and it makes quite a bit. I have eaten it as a salad as well with corn chips or doritos. The picture is of the original recipe from I have modified it just a little (added ground beef & salsa mixed in) because I like it better that way and it makes more.
