Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
I generally use a little extra of everything. There's plenty of wiggle room. You can easily change the hamburger for ground turkey or chicken. Sticking to the recipe, though - You will need: - ½ lb hamburger - ½ medium onion - 1 tbsp taco seasoning mix - ½ cup salsa - 1 15 oz can stewed tomatoes - ½ 15 oz can kidney beans - ½ 15 oz can sweet corn - ½ 8 oz can tomato sauce - ½ cup water - ½ cup grated cheddar cheese - ¼ cup sour cream - 1 bag tortilla chips (scoops work best)
