My kids LOVE this - and you could easily switch out the ground beef for black beans (I usually mash beans into my meat so it's half & half). Not sure of the amounts, but this is my recipe. Brown 2 lbs ground beef, drain. Mix in 1-2 packets taco seasoning, half a cup of Miracle whip, 1 can or 2 cups frozen corn, and a small jar of salsa (any heat, any brand, any variety). Spread half of mixture in a 9x13 pan, or 1/4 in each of 2 8x8 pans (freeze one for later!). Sprinkle on about a cup of shredded cheese (any kind works, I usually use a mexican blend or colby-jack or cheddar-jack). Crush a bag of tortilla chips (plain, Doritos, whatever your preference - my kids prefer plain tortilla chips, I like Doritos). Spread on the rest of the meat mixture, and repeat the chip & cheese layers. Bake til hot & bubbly. Serve as is or with taco toppings - I use shredded lettuce, sour cream, more salsa, and ranch dressing. Leftovers r awesome!
