Chuckwagon Beef Skillet

I got this recipe out of one of those small cookbooks at the checkout a few years ago. This is one of my hubby's favorites, and company has enjoyed it as well. Very filling and good on a cold day.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Drain off the grease and return the pan to the stove.
  2. Add in the water, barbecue sauce, the baked beans, and the tomato sauce. Stir to mix well. Bring to a boil.
  3. Once at a boil, add in the pasta and cover. Turn down to a simmer, and cook for about 12-15 minutes, or until the pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
  4. Scoop out into bowls, garnish with cheese, and dig in!

I really liked this a lot. I added crushed red pepper and used a spicy Texas style barbecue. DH didn't care for it as he felt it was a little on the sweet side but that's exactly what I like about it.

I made this using extra lean ground turkey. I added in about 2 tsps powdered garlic and 2 tsps onion powder. I omitted cheese due to diet. Hubby and I both rated this as excellent and I will be making this again!! Thanks Misa!!
