Taco Junk

This is very similar to taco mac, but it is made without pasta. It's really good by itself, served with cornbread, served with corn chips, served in a tortilla or with cheese and sour cream, or I've even heard of it served over a hot dog on a bun. You can use different beans too, like black beans, if you like, but my family prefers pintos. No matter what, we really enjoy it. :-)

1 lb ground turkey or beef
1 can corn, drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 packet of taco seasoning
1 packet of ranch dressing mix (leave out if you can't have allergens in it)Directions
Brown meat, drain, and return to pan. Add rest of ingredients, bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Crockpot: Brown meat, drain, and add to crockpot.  Add all ingredients to crockpot.  Stir, cover, and cook on high 4-6 hours or high 8-10.
