(From Healthy Cooking Magazine) Makes a LOT! (Number of servings are estimated.) Simple, quick & healthy! Much better than Hamburger Helper. ;) You can also add (original recipe calls for) sliced ripe olives and green chillies.

Recipe Ingredients for Mexican Beef & Pasta

3 cups Whole Wheat Rotini
1 pound lean ground beef (93% lean)
1 small onion, chopped
29 oz. Tomatoes Diced No Salt Added
15 ounces black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 cup chunky salsa
1/2 cup Reduced-Fat Sour Cream
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
2 tsp. Onion Powder
1 1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes

Recipe Directions for Mexican Beef & Pasta

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

  2. Stir in the pasta, tomatoes, beans, corn, salsa, green chilies, olives and seasonings (you can also use prepared taco seasoning - making your own reduces sodium). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Serve with sour cream and chips if desired.
