This might be my favorite dish. It’s so easy but you can still develop complex flavors quickly. It’s even yummier on day 3 and blends my love of tacos with my love of german stews. It’s even hearty enough that the men in your life will love it – it’s Daddy, big brother and boyfriend approved.
- 1 lb ground beef (or turkey!)
- 1 16oz jar salsa
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 2 cups dried pasta (wagon wheel is cute)
- 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
- 1 can corn drained and rinsed
- ½ cup sour cream
In a large dutch oven brown off the meat. Drain any excess fat and add the meat back to the pot. Add the taco seasoning, jar of salsa and pasta to the meat and stir. Fill the salsa jar with water, give it a shake and add it to the pot as well. Simmer uncovered until the pasta is al dente, about 20 minutes. (Add more water if needed!)
Once the pasta is tender add in corn & beans; stir to warm them through. Remove from the heat and fold in the sour cream. Boom you’re done! Top with cheese, sour cream, avocado, and jalapeños.
You can go wild with this one. Use different salsas to change it up, try chipotle smoky flavors or add some cocoa and cinnamon for a mole twist. Holy mole it’s good (I just went there).
