  • 8 oz creamy French salad dressing

To start, prep and chop the ingredients accordingly and set them aside. Next, heat a large pan over medium-high heat, add the ground beef, and start breaking it apart. After this, add the diced onion, and continue to cook until brown and the onion is nice and translucent. Drain the excess grease. Next, add 1 packet of taco seasoning, 1/4 cup of water, and 1/2 cup of canned corn. Mix and cook for a few minutes until heated through, then remove from heat.
