When our youngest daughter was in Sunday School, the students put together a cookbook as a fund-raiser. Tis was one of the recipes included. It solves the problem of eating messy tacos by combining all the ingredients in a bowl.—Fay Miller, Denham Springs, Louisiana


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 can (16 ounces) pork and beans
  • Corn chips
  • Toppings: shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, sliced ripe olives, shredded cheddar cheese, taco sauce


  1. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the tomatoes, taco seasoning and water; mix well. Add pork and beans. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes. To serve, place corn chips in four soup bowls. Top with beef mixture and toppings of your choice.
To make Taco in a Bowl more spicy, use Mexican-style stewed tomatoes and stir in a can of chopped green chills.
