Canned Food Alliance


TwitterMoms.com is hosting a recipe contest that relates to the Canned Food Allliance.   From what I learned on the TwitterMoms discussion page, the CFA is a resource for information on the nutrition and versatility of canned food.  The CFA also supports the Produce for Better Health Foundation and the Fruits and Veggies More Matters program. They also sponsor a website called mealtime.org.


A favorite recipe in my family that includes some canned foods is this Mexican dish that is easy to prepare and inexpensive. 


Mexican One Pot Meal
1 lb. ground beef or lean ground turkey
3/4 cup diced onion
1 - 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 - 15 oz. can corn kernels
1 - 15 oz. can pinto beans
2 cups rice
1 packet taco seasoning 
Directions: In a large skillet, saute beef and onions. Add remaining ingredients then add 1 cup water, stir, bring to a boil. Simmer until rice is cooked about 15 minutes.
