Recipe by Sophie's Momma
This is my rendition of what my mom called "South of the Border" taco mixture. It's sweet and spicy and is perfect for tacos, Mexican salads, or dip.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1⁄2 small yellow onion, chopped (dried chopped onions can be substituted)
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) packet taco seasoning
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 1⁄4 cup sugar or 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2⁄3 cup salsa
- 3 tablespoons hot sauce
