Now here's an easy ground beef recipe that's definitely not boring. Loaded with southwestern spice, veggies, and twisted pasta, our Mexican Twist is a mouth-full of "ooh, yeah!" And the best part is that it cooks up in a quick 25-minutes, making it an easy weeknight dinner.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 (1 ounce each) envelopes dry taco seasoning mix
  • 8 ounces spiral pasta
What To Do:
  1. In a 6-quart soup pot, over high heat, brown ground beef and onion 8 to 10 minutes, until no pink remains in beef and onion is tender. Add remaining ingredients except pasta; mix well.
     
  2. Bring to a boil, then stir in pasta. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 15 to 18 minutes, or until pasta is tender.

Calories Carbs Fat Protein Sodium Sugar 607 66 24 29 1,086 11 I entered this reciepe on MyFitnessPal and this is the breakdown, does this sound right?

I doubled the recipe but used 7 cups water, still seemed like too much water. it made it more of a soup. still it tasted good

I make a dish like this, but I cook the pasta separate mix it with the beef mixture put it in a baking pan, cover it with shredded cheese and bake until the cheese is melted. its a family favorite.

Do you add the water to the beef with the remaining ingredients? Or is the water for the pasta :{

Or use lean ground beef and then you don't need to. I always use minumum 85/15 and often leaner and there's no grease to drain.

Suggest draining excess grease off ground beef before adding other ingredients.
