“This is a great meatless substitute for the seasoned ground beef you find in many Mexican recipes. I find I've been making this recipe WITH the addition of black beans more and more. I use this over nachos, or as a filling for tacos, burritos, or enchiladas. Because of the wonderful spices in the mixture, I find that alot of my favorite "meat-eaters" really don't miss the ground beef at all!! ; >”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add meatless ground burger, water and spices.
  2. Mix well and let simmer for 10-15 minutes until heated through and water is absorbed.
  3. Add black beans and simmer another 5 minutes.
  4. Use this mixture to replace the seasoned ground beef in any of your favorite Mexican recipes!
  5. Another note* One can use 1 cup of TVP in place of the soy crumbles or Boca. You might need a bit more that 1 cup of water to keep mixture from getting too dry.
