While looking around my kitchen to see what I had laying around to make for dinner yesterday I found:
1) A bit into tomato (by my son)
2) Half a bag of corn
3) A little bit of sour cream
4) A half pound of frozen ground beef
I remembered a recipe I had pinned from Betty Crocker called Taco Supper Skillet, it just so happened to feature all of the ingredients I had found…I had to run to the store to grab a can of kidney beans and taco seasoning but that was it. The rest I had on hand.
I quickly made the dish and we all loved it. The kids “ate a mess” out of it (I love me some southern sayin’s!) 🙂
Here’s how you make it!
Start by browning your beef in a large pot or dutch oven. Drain any excess fat
Grab your mauled to death pack of taco seasoning (Laughing Coyote had a blast throwing this out of the shopping cart 392 times during our 5 minute trip to the store!) You can also make your own seasoning if you prefer…I was feeling lazy.
Add the taco seasoning mix to the beef
Add in 2 ¼c of water and stir
Add 1 ½c uncooked noodles (the thicker the better)
Add 1 ½c frozen corn
Add 1 can drained kidney beans
Cover your pot and bring to a boil. Once it starts to boil turn it down to medium heat and cook for about 15 minutes, until your noodles are ready
Add 1c sour cream…or if you’re like me whatever is left in the container (about ¼c)
Sprinkle with cheese, diced tomato and chives or green onions.
Like I said, everyone loved this…and the kids ate the veggies. ALLELUIA!!! Lover Boy said it reminded him of a different meal that I had made before that tasted similar to this (he referred to it as the best thing I had ever made). I am clueless! I have no idea what he’s talking about…guess it’s time for me to go browsing on this here ol’ blog and see if I posted it before! 🙂 Wish me luck!
Hope you guys enjoy this quick and easy, yet yummy one pot meal!
Here’s the recipe.
