I hate it when I plan a certain meal, then can't go through with it for whatever reason. Now, what am I going to do with the meat I defrosted? Regroup! Enter... Tatchos.

Salt & Pepper
1 pound Ground Meat (your favorite type)

1 4oz can Green Chilis
3/4 15.25oz can Corn (drained)

In a medium frying pan, brown Ground Meat till no longer pink.
