Ground Beef Recipes

Taco Stew
Yield: 4 Servings

Fairly cheap, easy and doesn't take a lot of effort to prepare. At the same time it's not too high in calories or fat, has lots of fiber and protein and tastes good. The sodium could be reduced by using your own spices instead of using the prepared taco seasoning mix too.

1 Lb Lean Ground Beef 1 Envelope Taco Seasoning (1 1/4 Oz),
1 Onion, Chopped -Undrained
1 Can Whole Kernel Corn (15 1/4 Oz), 1 Can Tomato Soup (10 3/4 Oz)
-Undrained 1 Cup Water, Undiluted
1 Can Diced Tomatoes With Chiles (10 Oz) Baked Tortilla Chips
1 Can Pinto Beans In Chili Sauce (15 Oz), Monterey Jack Cheese

Brown beef, drain and rinse with hot water to remove excess fat. Combine all ingredients, except tortilla chips and cheese, in a Dutch oven. Simmer on low. To serve, crumble tortilla chips in a serving bowl and cover with a generous helping of stew. Sprinkle with cheese.
