I love it when I make a meal that everyone likes…it’s a pretty big deal.
1 lb. ground beef, turkey or chicken
1 package taco seasoning
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 carrot, chopped
8 oz. egg noodles
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tomato, chopped
In a Dutch oven, cook and crumble the meat until cooked through; drain excess fat. Add taco seasoning, water and salsa and simmer on medium for about 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a separate pot, cook pasta per directions on the packaging. Drain.
Add green peppers, onion and carrots to the meat mixture, stir and continue to simmer for about five minutes.
Stir in noodles and cream cheese. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, remove pan from heat and cover until cheese melts.
Sprinkle with tomatoes and serve.
Did I change anything? I added the taco seasoning to the recipe to give it more flavor and the carrots to give it some more veggies. I also served it with a couple slices of avocado on the side.
What did the family think? Everyone ate it and NO ONE complained. NO ONE. Hubby ate all of his, went back for seconds and then helped our youngest with his leftovers. I think he liked it. What do you think? 🙂
