Pioneer Stew

Nothing beats my mom's Pioneer Stew on a chilly, winter day. Or hot summer day. Or any day in between. It's THAT good!!

1 lb. hamburger meat
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 lb. can or 2 cups whole kernel corn (just use a pint)
1 lb. can kidney beans
1 lb. can or 2 cups tomatoes
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Brown burger meat and onion until tender. Drain. Then, drain into a bowl: corn, beans, tomatoes. Add liquids, chili powder, and salt to meat and cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/2 (no lid). Add corn, beans, and tomatoes. Simmer 10 minutes. Put cheese on top and serve immediately.
