    Pam-I-Am's Note:

    A great way to use a pound of ground beef and make a dinner that all will love. It's so easy too! If you cannot find Mexicorn by Green Giant, you can use a regular can of corn or frozen corn. To control the heat of the dish, you can choose mild, medium or hot salsa!

      This is an easy recipe for a quick dinner! I did not use the corn salsa, since I did not have any in my cupboard. I subbed the salsa for Diced tomatoes with green chilies. For my sides: Corn bread and Jalapenos Poppers! Yum!

      Very easy, quick, make-ahead meal. I, like someone else said, used taco seasoning in place of chili powder, and I use 1 cup salsa, 1 cup tomato sauce instead of 2 cups salsa....and I just use frozen corn as we don't care for canned.

      Added chopped celery and onion to the ground beef. Used my home made salsa. Used frozen corn. Didn't add chilli powder nor cumin since my salsa is quite spicy. Added the cheese and stirred it in before baking. Very good.
