A quick skillet meal. Only 1 skillet to wash...woohoo! A kid-pleaser at my house.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, brown and crumble the ground sirloin with the chopped onion until no longer pink; drain excess fat, if desired (there shouldn't be that much if you've used the extra lean ground sirloin).
  2. Return cooked beef/onions to skillet. Add the tomato sauce, water, diced tomatoes, dry macaroni and seasonings. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover tightly and simmer for 12-15 minutes (stirring once or twice) or until macaroni is tender.
  4. Add milk and cheese and stir well, until cheese is smooth and melted.
  5. Serve.

Very good. Felt it was missing a little something, so I added red and wine vinegar, tomato paste, and a little hot sauce for kick. Tasty!

Fast, easy, and everyone enjoyed it. Used a can of Rotel and the higher amounts of spices, also Mexican oregano rather than dried cilantro. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is pretty good. I love that it doesn`t use packaged taco seasoning. I agree with others that it needs a bit of changes to be amazing. I will play around with it and am sure it will end up on my keeper list. Thanks for the great idea.
