Marj Moritz


1/2 lb. ground beef
Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes optional
3/4 cup Pale Ale or your favorite kind of beer
1 16 oz. block Velveeta cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
1/2 cup Shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1 14.5 oz. can Rotel Tomatoes partially drained
1 cup black beans drained and rinsed
1/4 cup red onion finely diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

1. In a large, high-walled skillet over medium heat, brown and crumble the ground meat, adding in desired amounts of salt and pepper.

2. Once itís nice and brown, drain any excess grease, toss in the crushed red pepper flakes and add the beer. Let the beer reduce for about 4-5 minutes.

3. Add in the cheese and let it melt and simmer, stirring occasionally.

4. Once the cheese is melted, stir in the beans, red onions, and cilantro. Add the tomatoes and some of the juice from the can, only if you want it to be a little thinner in consistency. If you've already reached your desired level of thickness, don't add any juice.

To Garnish: I like to sprinkle some extras on top, like a few more black beans, tomatoes (or pico de gallo/salsa fresca), grated cheese, red onions, and cilantro. Not necessary, but it looks nice!

You can substitute the ground beef with hot (or regular) pork sausage with the casings removed.

Be sure to pair this with some homemade restaurant salsa!
