Gluten Free Friday: Cowboy Skillet Mac

This is one of those freezer and pantry diving “what’s for dinner?” excursions.  I had half a pound of ground beef.  That’s it.  There is not much that can be done in this household of carnivores with just half a pound of ground beef.  So I added in some beans and…other stuff, tossed in pasta and cheese and made a nice skillet mac.   Serves 4 at Calories 577.09 and  Fat 19 g.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb ground beef, cooked and drained
  • 1.25 cups rotel
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup  corn
  • 3/4 cup red peppers, diced
  • 8 oz. 2% Velveeta
  • 4 oz. brown rice pasta
  • 1 tsp southwest seasoning (mine was from Penzey’s)

Directions:
1. Boil pasta according to package directions.
2. Brown ground beef, drain and rinse.
3. Dice your Velveeta.
4. Add pasta, Velveeta, beef, and all veggies to a large skillet and stir over medium low heat until cheese is melty and all ingredients are well combined.
5. Serve immediately.
