  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 jar (16 oz) Old El Paso™ salsa
  • 2 cups Progresso™ red kidney beans, drained (from 19-oz can)
  • 2 cups Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes, undrained (from 28-oz can)
  • 1 1/2 cups Green Giant™ Steamers™ Niblets® frozen corn
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 package (6.5 to 8.5 oz) cornbread mix
  • Milk
  • Margarine, if required by mix
  • Egg, if required by mix
  • 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon sliced green onions


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in salsa, kidney beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder and cumin. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
