Make Something Monday: Mexican Seashell Casserole Variation

I took yet another recipe from Alexis at Running Away? I'll help you pack. If it wasn't for all her yummy posts, I probably wouldn't have anything to post myself on Mondays! LOL! Thank you Alexis! :-)



Mexican Seashell Casserole variation:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 c. chopped green pepper
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 2-1/2 cups rotini (called for small shells, but I didn't have any)
  • 1 c. sliced onions
  • 2 cups salsa (called for 1-1/2 c. tomato juice, but I didn't have any)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup corn (didn't call for it, but saw Alexis put it in hers and it sounded good!)

Brown ground beef, onions, corn and green peppers in skillet until onions are tender. Add salsa, chili powder, and salt. Mix thoroughly, simmer uncovered 10 minutes. Cool rotini in salted boiling water until tender. Combine with meat mixture. Makes 4 servings.

Super easy! I didn't know how I was going to like it without cheese. For some reason when I think of casseroles, I think of cheese, but it was delicious without it! :-)
