Total Time: About 1 hour

• 2 pounds ground beef
• 1 ½ cups diced onion
• 1 28 oz. diced tomatoes
• 1 can 15 oz. pinto beans; rinsed and drained
• 1 can 17 oz. whole kernel corn, drained

• Fritos or taco chips Directions:

1. Brown ground beef with chopped onion, drain off excess grease

2. Add all other ingredients, except cheese and chips; bring to a low boil.

3. Simmer covered for 15-20 minutes or until thickened.

4. Garnish with shredded cheese and taco chips/fritos.

5. You can garnish with sour cream if you like. Sometimes I add black beans, rinsed and drained too.

Comments: We love this and I usually double it to have a big pot on hand.
