Loaded with ground beef and pasta, flavored with taco seasoning and salsa, and studded with black beans and corn, this cheesy Taco Pasta Skillet quickly comes together in just one pot!
Y’all know how much I love getting dinner on the table using a pound of ground beef and just one pot. So today I’ve got another meal to add to that beloved, ever-expanding recipe category…One-Pot Taco Pasta Skillet!
Some of you may recall that I shared a One-Pan Cheesy Beef Taco Skillet a few months ago. It includes beef, rice, and just three other ingredients for a Hamburger Helper-esque dinner. Today’s Taco Pasta Skillet involves a few additional ingredients for more complex flavors and textures, but it’s still super quick and easy to make using pantry and refrigerator staples.
Basically, all you do is brown some ground beef in a big pot, mix in salsa, beef broth, bow-tie pasta, black beans, and corn, and let everything simmer for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is tender. Stir in some cheese, sprinkle with cilantro, and dinner is DONE!
From start to finish, this recipe takes under 30 minutes. And seeing as how it’s basically beef and pasta in a cheesy, taco-flavored sauce (with some other goodies thrown in for good measure), it’s a big hit with kids and adults alike. Comfort food to the max!
We’re big fans of all things taco around here…as evidenced by all of the recipes on the site including the word “taco.” 😉 If your family loves TACO EVERYTHING as well, be sure to add this One-Pot Taco Pasta Skillet to your menu! Loads of flavor for so little time and effort = the best kind of recipe.
