  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil until hot. Sauté the onion for 5 minutes. Add the beef and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until completely cooked through. Add the taco seasoning and stir. Add the corn and beans, cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool till its warm.

This a great lunch idea, for kids too. Just don’t let it brown too much, it may not taste the best. 🙂
