I’m not going to lie to you, but this beef recipe my dad taught me when I was a teenager had everything. From the start, I loved the pinto beans, the cumin from the chiles, and of course the beef spices. I learned how to make the black bean dip by following his steps, which included a bunch of dried chilies, chopped tomatoes, onions, and green chilies mixed together with some lime juice and olive oil to create a delicious black bean dip. This dish was so good that I served it to some friends and then asked if they knew how I made it! They didn’t, so I borrowed their techniques. And borrowed them again for my next batch of chili!
A well-loved quick cooking beef recipe is the traditional beef and bean tacos. These easy ground beef and bean tacos have become mainstream because they are loaded with fresh, natural ingredients, but the key is in how you make the taco itself.

This Baked Beans recipe is a real crowd pleaser. If you love the classic baked beans and rice dish served at Mexican restaurants, then you’ll love this recipe. The key to this recipe being flavorful is using canned beans instead of fresh. I used dried beans that were seasoned with a little liquid, and also utilized my own technique of adding water to the beans as they were boiling.
My fourth favorite beef recipe is one that’s perfect for a week night meal when you have a lot of time to cook. This one calls for tenderloin and you will want to use a soy rub if you haven’t already done so. This easy recipe calls for brown rice, which can be found in a variety of different styles of packaging. I prefer brown rice that’s either fresh or dry. After preparing all these ingredients, simply throw them into a crock pot and let them go to work!
