  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes (I like to use fire roasted)
  • 1 (15 ounce can) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced olives
  • 1 McCormick® taco seasoning package
  • 1 (14.5) ounce beef broth
  • 1 (16 ounce) velveeta cheese, cubed OR 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, cilantro, sliced avocado, tomatoes, tortilla strips
  1. In a large pot over medium high heat add the ground beef. Cook and crumble until no longer pink and drain the grease.
  2. Add the diced tomatoes, corn, kidney beans, black beans, olives, taco seasoning packet, and beef broth.
  3. Add in the velveeta cheese OR the shredded cheddar cheese.  Stir together and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 2-3 minutes to let the flavors blend and serve with desired toppings.
