Do you have those tried and true recipes that no matter how many times you eat it it always hits the spot and is something you can fall back on when you are in a menu slump? This is one of them for me.
Many, many, many years ago when I was a teenager my stepmom made this for one of our outings on the boat. As an adult it has become a staple in my menu. It is a recipe I know by heart, it comes together fast, and it is a hearty dish.
1 pound ground beef
1/4 to 1/2 cup salsa
1 can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can light red kidney bean, drained
1 small can sliced olives, drained
1 can corn
cheddar cheese, shredded
In a large pot, brown the ground beef. Drain meat, if necessary. Add salsa, tomatoes, kidney beans, olives, and corn. Heat through.
Top with cheese and sour cream. Serve with chips.
Makes 5 to 6 servings
