This recipe is a favorite for my kids. They like these Goulash type recipes where we mix hamburger, beans, corn and tomatoes. With this recipe you will need to cook the hamburger beforehand, and I would highly suggest using a lean ground beef and this recipe can easily be swapped out with ground turkey or ground venison.
We like to top our bowls of casserole with fresh toppings like diced tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream and make sort of a taco bowl type dish. You could also throw this inside tortillas for burritos, in fact that is what I like to do with leftovers, and then I wrap the burritos up in foil and pop them into the freezer and I have quick and easy lunches for another day!
Two birds with one stone…I love that kind of cooking!
