Kale and Black Bean Tacos


Not sure if anyone reads this blog anymore? Anyone....?? Check, Test?? 
Here's a good recipe we like at our house.
(We usually double.)
1 T olive oil
1 small red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 head of kale, chopped fairly fine
1 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 lb. beef (optional, we've made it both ways-with or without the beef)
1/2-1 cup cooked quinoa (again optional, I always toss quinoa into things)
1 cup frozen corn
cumin, chili powder, oregano, salt and pepper-to your taste
corn tortillas
avacado, salsa, cheese, nonfat plain yogurt or sour cream or any of your favorite taco toppings

In a large skillet, cook beef if using. Add garlic and onion and saute' for a few minutes until tender. Add seasonings and chopped kale and cook for a few minutes until it turns tender and bright green. Add beans, quinoa, and corn and warm through. Serve on corn tortillas with your preferred toppings! Yummy!
