1 lb lean ground beef
2 cups chopped onion and bell pepper
1 whole kernel sweet corn
1  pkg Taco Seasoning Mix
1 can (16 oz) Refried Beans
1/2 cup taco sauce
2 cups corn chips
1 cup (4 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2:  Add ground beef along with the onion and peppers in a large skillet. Brown over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.

3:  Return the beef to the skillet and add the corn, taco seasoning mix and 1/4 cup water to the skillet  Mix well. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.

4:  Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine refried beans and taco sauce.  Mix well.

5:  Spoon half of the ground beef mixture into sprayed baking dish. Top with half of bean mixture and half of the corn chips. Top with remaining beef mixture and bean mixture. Cover with foil. Bake at 375°F. for 30 minutes.

5:  Remove from oven. Uncover baking dish and top with remaining half of chips. Sprinkle with cheese.

6:  Return to oven and bake, uncovered, an additional 10 to 12 minutes or until thoroughly heated and cheese is melted.

Darlene’s Tips: You can add any ingredients you like. You can also use frozen onion and pepper mix. Just add to the ground beef when you add the corn. Some black beans and/or pinto beans added to the mix would be delish! Serve with a side of sour cream, guacamole, pico… whatever you like. You can also serve with a side of Spanish Rice!
