I call this my weekend meal! I love to prepare and serve this on Saturdays! I don’t know but I treat this as a reward for a week’s work! It’s very easy to make. All you need to do is to follow these steps that I have provided and you are good to go! Feel free to add more ingredients if you wish. Although, I think there is nothing that can make this dish better because it is already perfect! A big thanks to my dear friend, Emma for giving me this recipe. Now, it’s my time to share it with you! I hope this makes you smile today. Enjoy!
1/2 pound large or medium shells pasta
1-pound ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 packet taco seasoning
1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup water (or beef broth)
1 cup jarred salsa
1 tsp olive oil
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Step 1: Cook the shelled pasta. Refer to the instructions written on the package. Drain the water and rinse with running water to stop the cooking process.
Step 2: Place a skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Step 3: Drizzle oil and allow it to heat through.
Step 4: Add diced onion and sauté until translucent.
Step 5: Add the ground beef and cook until crumbly and brown.
Step 6: Discard the excess grease and add in the taco seasoning.
Step 7: Pour in 3/4 cup of beef broth and stir until the liquid evaporates.
Step 8: Add in the cooked pasta and stir until well mixed with the sauce.
Step 9: Remove from the heat and garnish with sour cream.
Step 10: Bon Appetit!
Sour cream is optional.
You can skip the sour cream and it is still going to be very delicious!
