    ounces vegetarian ground beef (I use Morningstar crumbles)

    medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)

    ounces red enchilada sauce (if you are vegan, either make your own, or purchase a vegan brand)
  • 12
    cup frozen corn, thawed, drained
  • 1
    (4 1/2 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained

    cup pinto beans, drained (may sub black beans)

    teaspoon ground cumin
