Here’s the recipe for my favorite ground beef tacos!
Seasoned Ground Beef is mixed with corn and chunky salsa for a slight twist on the classic taco.

2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (11 ounces) corn, drained
1 cup prepared chunky salsa
12 taco shells, warmed
Shredded Monterey Jack cheese, thinly sliced lettuce, sliced ripe olives, chopped tomatoes
