Fiesta Helper

Courtesy of our good friend Dana Ross, white trash cook extraordinaire.
1 cup frozen corn
Hamburger Helper – Cheesy Enchilada Flavor
1 lb. ground meat or ground turkey
1 can black beans
Cook 1 cup of frozen corn. Set aside. Open box. Brown 1 lb. ground meat or 1lb. ground turkey. Prepare as instructed on the aforementioned box. During the last 10min of “cooking”: Add one can of black beans (drained), and corn, stirring occasionally until heated throughout.

Remove from heat, let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, white or yellow, and a margarita. Olé!

    I’m a little confused. At what point do I combine the ingredients? And what if I only have the blue corn tortilla chips? Will it still work?

    Blue corn chips are a little high-class for this, especially if they are organic. It might work, but I would recommend trying it yourself first before you fix this recipe for guests. As for combining the ingredients, Hamburger Helper makes a quality product that includes step-by-step instructions, you should have no trouble as long as you follow them closely.

    Good luck!

    I cannot wait to try this. I’m going to get crazy and use canned instead of frozen corn. Less work.

    What crack’s me up most is that one of the automatically generated “possible related links” to this post is “Ice Cube’s ‘Good in the Hood'”

    We make something like this too, but we use ground chicken. It’s a much nicer flavor than turkey. Try it!
