Add your family's favorite picante sauce to ground beef, black beans and corn, then watch how quickly they empty their bowls. This mixture freezes well, so I keep a batch on hand for quick nutritious meals. —Janet Brannan of Sidney, Montana

"I used 1 lb ground beef , 1 can cream of corn, omitted the salt and pepper. Didn't change anything else. Next time I'll use regular corn."

"My daughters give this two thumbs up and I would have given it 5 stars, but there were no stars with which to rate it. :) It was easy and very tasty and I had all of the ingredients except for picante sauce. I used salsa instead. We had tortilla chips with ours."

MY REVIEW

"I made some adjustments to suit what I had on hand, and it was very delicious. Next time I will make sure to cook it in the crock pot so the flavors have more time to blend. Thanks for another great recipe!"

MY REVIEW

"Easy, quick and great flavor. I usually add more cumin for a bolder flavor. Never any leftovers of this stew. Definite family favorite."
