Yield: 6 servings (at least!)
- 1 lb. ground beef
1⁄4 cup dried minced onions
1 tsp. garlic powder
28 oz. Can of diced tomatoes
4.5 oz. Can of chopped green chiles (I used mild but you can always use spicy if you want a kick!)
8 oz. Tomato sauce
14 oz. Chicken broth
1 packet taco seasoning
14 oz. can of black beans undrained
1 cup frozen corn
1 box Penne Pasta Barilla Pronto
1.5 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions Optional garnish
Crumbled tortilla chips Optional garnish
In a large saute pan, brown your ground beef over medium high heat. Use the back of your spoon to break the beef up.
While it’s browning add your dried minced onions, garlic powder and also add some salt and pepper to taste.
Once the beef is fully browned, add your diced tomatoes, diced green chiles, tomato sauce, chicken broth, taco seasoning, black beans in their juice and frozen corn. Mix well and bring to this to a boil.
Once it’s boiling, stir in your box of Barilla Pronto Penne Pasta and cover. DO NOT TURN YOUR HEAT DOWN, leave it at medium high.
Cook covered for 8 minutes, stirring once in a while.
Once you’re at the 8 minute mark, stir in 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and then sprinkle the remaining cup of cheddar cheese over the top.
Cover the pasta again and cook for 2 more minutes.
Sprinkle with green onions and crumbled tortilla chips and enjoy! #mexicanfood #homemade #yummy
