    This recipe is very easy and is delicious and fun for the whole family. Garnish with shredded cheese and/or sour cream depending on taste and have with corn chips! I doubled the broth to make it a bit 'soupier'

    I've been making this for about 10 years. Everyone I've feed this loves it. It's easy to make and delish.

    This recipe has a wonderful taste. It makes just enough for my family of four, but I have 2 teenage boys and they eat a lot. So add a cup of corn and sprinkle it with cheese to make it go just a little farther. I add garlic and onion when I brown the meat. One time I didn't have spiral pasta, so I used 4oz. of angel hair, broken into pieces. The angel hair soaked up a lot of the liquid. It made it more of a pasta skillet then a soup. My family loves it either way.

    This is so easy and sooooo good! I used half a jar of medium salsa instead of picante and liked the flavor so much better. It freezes well, too!
