1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp chili powder
1 1/3 cups water
3/4 cup milk
3 Tbsp margarine or butter
1 (5.8 oz) package PASTA RONI Creamy Garlic Flavor
1 cup thick and chunky salsa
1/2 cup frozen whole kernel corn
1/2 cup (2 oz) shredded Mexican cheese blend
- In large skillet, brown ground beef with onion and chili powder. Remove from pan to drain; set aside.
- In same skillet, bring water, milk, margarine, pasta and Special Seasonings to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Gently boil uncovered 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Return beef to skillet. Stir in salsa and corn; return to a boil. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until pasta is slightly firm. Combine cheese with Topping; sprinkle over top just before serving.
Notes: Makes 4 servings. This is what it is: Pasta Roni with mix-ins. Probably not a recipe you'd want to serve to company, but I liked it all the same.
Source: I clipped this recipe off a box of Pasta Roni several years ago when I was in college and I ate this stuff regularly.
