This is a delicious, one-pan meal to change up the ordinary ground beef or ground turkey recipes. Although the dish is delicious the first day - the leftovers just might be a bit better!

Excellent! I did add some mushrooms in place of peppers as that is what I had on hand. Next time I will use both. I did decrease the salt and pepper by half as a personal preference and I used frozen corn which worked fine. I had Velveeta that needed to be used so I thought this was a great way to do that. I will be making this one again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat until it ripples.
  2. Break vermicelli in 1/2 and add to oil to brown. Careful, it doesn't take long!
  3. Add ground meat, garlic, and onion. Brown until meat is no longer pink.
  4. Spoon out grease from meat.
  5. Add remaining ingredients except cheese. Stir until blended.
  6. Reduce heat to simmer, Cover and cook about 35 minutes - stirring occasionally - until the liquid has been reduced.
  7. Remove from heat, top with cheese, and allow to set for 5 minutes. American/Velveeta gives a creaminess while cheddar gives a great bite - either is really good.
  8. Serve.
