Another quickie recipe for a cold night.....

Southwest one-dish supper

1 lb. Ground beef
1 package (4.9 oz.) au gratin potato mix
1 can (15 1/4 oz.) whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) stewed tomatoes, undrained
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
Dash salt and pepper
* 1 rounded tblsp. taco seasoning
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar OR shredded
Mexican style four cheese

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the potatoes, and contents of sauce mix, undrained corn, undrained tomatoes, milk, water and taco seasoning. Salt and Pepper to taste. Transfer to a greased 3 qt. Baking dish. (I save time by using a dutch oven to cook the hamburger, drain, then add the remaining ingredients, cover with lid and pop into oven.)

Cover and bake at 350 for 65-70 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with cheese and bake uncovered for 5 minutes longer.

*Taco seasoning may be doubled if you like your food a little more spicy. I prefer mild and have adjusted the seasoning for my taste.

Serves 4-6 hungry people
