Revised "Famous Taco Salad"

Taco Salad    3 servings   9 Weight Watcher points

15 ounce can black beans    If you don't like black beans buy organic re-fried beans (almost 3 srvs of beans)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 lg onion chopped
1 cup red wine or broth (wine is 5 points)
1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
1/2 Pound ground beef
2 Tablespoons taco seasonings
3 C Romaine lettuce
2/3 Fat free Salsa
2 Tablespoons diced or shredded low fat cheddar cheese
2 Dollops lite sour cream
1/2 Avocado sliced

 Combine beans, brown sugar, onion, and wine (or broth) in small pot and cook till most of the liquid is gone. Salt and pepper to taste. Let them cool while you brown the meat mixed with taco seasonings.
Build your salad:
1/3 beans on each plate
In order top beans with:
Half lettuce, one serving of ground beef, half salsa, 1 tablespoons cheese, 1 dollop of sour cream, 1/4 avocado sliced.
You can substitute ground beef for any meat.
Hubby adds Salsa Verde to his salad.

I thought I had a pic of this. As soon as I find it I will post it. This recipe is pretty self explanatory. Start with the beans, lettuce, meat and toppings.
Make the meat before hand and just heat up if you want.
