.one pot mexican skillet.

i like easy meals. i like rich flavors. i like delicious. i love this dish.
brown a pound of ground beef. (i used vegetarian ground for this one). 
once your ground is browned (try saying that three times fast), add a packet of taco seasoning. 
add a can of tomato sauce and stir. complicated so far, right? 
plop in two cups of cooked corkscrew pasta or any pasta of your choice. 

add one cup of rinsed black beans. 
now pile on a cup of yellow corn. as opposed to neon pink corn. 

finish it off with one chopped roma tomato and one half to one cup of cheddar cheese. stir all of these ingredients in a skillet on medium high heat until hot, simmering and ready to eat. 

top your filling bowl with your favorite mexican yummies. i added guacamole.  if i had cilantro, i would have added that too and maybe a little more cheese if i had thought about it. cheese. more. mmm.

take a bite. enjoy!
