1 ½ cup elbow pasta

10 oz can of diced tomatoes

2 oz can of diced green chilies

  1. Brown the ground beef (or turkey) over medium heat and drain the grease. Season with taco seasoning.

  3. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and stir in noodles.
  4. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender.
