1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can pinto beans, undrained
1 can kidney beans, undrained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1/8 - 1/4 c taco seasoning
1 c black olives, chopped (optional)

Brown the meat with the onion and seasoning. When cooked, add the remaining ingredients and heat through.

*Taco seasoning substitution:
1 tbl. cumin
1 tbl. paprika
1-2 tsp. chili powder

Sometimes, taco seasoning can be a little overwhelming. At least to me. ☺ Cumin has a nice smoky flavor and the paprika and chili powder give it just enough heat to have it still be palatable and not too hot for most kids.
