mmm-yoso!!! is the blog about food. Today it is Cathy's turn to write about her $5 for two meal...
Hi. It is October and it gets darker earlier and is kind of chilly in the evenings(despite being in the 90's during the day) and sometimes The Mister and I come home late from work and want something quick yet tasty to eat.
I sort of "invented" this recipe a few years ago when the power was out in the neighborhood. We still have our propane fueled grill outside and were trying to use up things from the fridge and freezer. It is simple and does not require you to go scavenging through the house for spices in the dark, yet is tasty and filling.
Brown 1/2 lb of ground beef in a pan.
Drain the grease.
You can brown things on a gas grill in any regular pan, just like on the stove.
Always have these ingredients in your cupboard (buy when on sale)- Diced tomatoes with green chilies; Chili beans in sauce and canned corn. I got this MexiCorn when it was on sale. It is just corn with red and green peppers.
Drain the corn and put into the pan with the ground beef. Use the whole can of tomatoes and the whole can of chili beans.
If you want to, serve with some shredded cheese on top, and some crackers.
I only have oyster crackers. It makes things festive. Especially if you have no electricity. Whoo hoo!
