Here’s another really good recipe for using your home-canned or frozen hamburger mix. For the photo, I used some black bean and corn salsa and red beans that I wanted to get out of the pantry. You can make this as hot as you wish; but this mixture is a good one for most folks.
We like it with small tossed salads and corn muffins with fruit for dessert; all ready in less than half an hour. Top with shredded cheese, salsa and/or sour cream if desired. Hamburger Mix recipe HERE
