Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Lynda Mitchell


2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 red pepper, chopped
1/4 tsp ground cumin
2-4 Tbsp ketchup (optional)
1 11 oz can vacuum packed corn


Saute onion, garlic, red pepper and ground beef until meat is browned. Drain.

Add liquid from canned corn, chili powder, cumin, and salt. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until water is absorbed, then add the corn and simmer until heated.

If desired, add a little ketchup (2-4 Tbsp). Stir thoroughly until heated.


I serve this over rice. Or send it for lunches with salad greens and taco sauce to make a taco salad.


Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
