A can of corned beef can be your instant breakfast meal. It's naturally tasty from the can and when you saute it with some onions, garlic, and tomatoes, it's instantly more flavorful. It's a classic favorite that you can rely on when you want a beef meal that's not going to take up too much cooking time before it can be served. 

If you're missing nachos, you can turn to this canned food for a quick and easy nachos recipe. The corned beef becomes the taco meat, especially when you season it with taco seasoning. The red kidney beans add heft to the meat mixture, similar to a chili con carne. Then just grab a bag of corn chips and some cheese spread for the topping and it's a quick hack to satisfy your craving.
