Recipe Notes

I used an organic taco seasoning (Primal Palate brand) which is a little different than the common seasoning packet, it’s just spices, no added starch, MSG, etc. If you use a seasoning packet you may need to add more tomato juice or liquid because there is thickener in the packets. 

I used a seasoned can of black beans that had extra chili spices included to help with flavor.
