Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 bag (16 ounces) frozen, cut spinach, thawed and drained
- 1 block (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened (I prefer Philadelphia brand)
- 1 can (14 ounces) Mexican-style diced tomatoes (type of tomatoes and spiciness per your preference), drained
- 1 cup whole kernel corn, drained
- shredded cheese (cheddar, Colby Jack and Monterey Jack work well)
Here's how to make it:
- Cook the beef in a large skillet until no longer pink. When almost done, add the onion and continue cooking until translucent. Drain.
- Add the spinach to the meat mixture and cook for a few minutes more. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Stir in the cream cheese, drained tomatoes and corn.
- Pour the mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish that's been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top.
- Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 20 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, if desired.
