How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until it's well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

    Simple With Lots of Flavor

    This was a great last minute meal because I had all the ingredients on hand. However, I modified it a little bit. I actually strained the canned tomatoes and used an entire jar of Pace Picante Sauce. The flavors were fantastic overall, but some of the family wanted to add hot sauce. Also, I felt that some black beans and scallions could have added a little color to the dish. All in all, a tasty last minute dinner that is cheap and quick to make. It was a hit!

    Make it Gluten free

    a couple options to make this GF is to replace the pasta with tortilla or corn chips OR to remove the pasta and serve the mix with warm Corn tortillas and a side of Mexican Rice and beans

    This is very filling!

    I loved how easy this was to make! I generously added chopped onion to the ground beef, as it cooked. Then, instead of sliced advocado, I garnished with cilantro and (extra) cheese. My family and I were stuffed from the 1st serving! It was funny because my kids usually ask for seconds with every meal!
