"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1 lb. ziti noodles
1 lb. ground beef or chicken
1 Taco seasoning packet

1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese

Directions:
Prepare noodles, leaving them a bit undercooked. Drain. Prepare the ground beef or cubed chicken in a pan, drain. Add the taco seasoning packet to the meat as directed on the packet, then set aside. Boil the black beans in a covered pan on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. (This softens the beans. Grate the cheddar and thin slice the Velveeta.

Layer the following ingredients three times in a deep casserole dish: noodles, meat, beans, cheeses and a splash of milk on each layer. Bake covered at 350 for 1/2 hour. Sprinkle the lettuce and tomato on top just before serving.

Personal Notes:
I usually have to make a double batch of this so that we can have leftovers. You can serve it with salsa, hot sauce and sour cream as well. Try adding garlic, cumin and a bay leaf to the black beans while they boil to spice them up. (Just remember to remove the bay leaf before adding beans to the ziti!)
