Hey yall!! Do you feel that? Fall is coming! That means back to school time, that means chilly weather and that means you are going to be looking for some easy comforting dinners the whole family will love. I am here to help you with that! I love using dressing recipes and adding dressing into my own recipes and that is exactly what I am going to do in this delicious One Pot Southwestern Ranch Beef Pasta.
This meal is the perfect weeknight dinner, it takes no time to prepare and with only one pot that means less dishes on those busy nights.
I love this meal because it is pretty inexpensive to make and customizable, you can use ground beef, diced chicken breast, ground turkey or forgo the meat altogether and double the beans in it for a meat free Monday option.
I was shopping at Walmart for my weekly groceries and was planning on making just a simple one pot taco pasta when I spotted these Kraft Pourables and I mean who doesn’t like ranch? The new Kraft Pourables have been reinvented with a new, better taste. The Classic Ranch is now creamier, with more buttermilk and savory herbs, and is just what I needed to take a simple one pot meal over the top into this creamy southwestern pasta dish that is so comforting and flavorful.
I just brown up some onion, red pepper and ground beef (drain any grease off).
Add in my taco seasoning, garlic, ranch, milk and chicken stock. Then add in my pasta, corn and black beans.
Bring to a boil, simmer for 15-20 minutes, add some cheese in and voila you have an easy delicious meal that the whole family will love!
So don’t stress about dinner this busy season, with this One Post Southwestern Ranch Beef Pasta you can serve your family a comforting delicious meal in no time!
