One reason I’m always on the hunt for beef recipes is because we butcher and fill our freezer with an entire cow at a time.  It’s a great way to save money on meat so if you haven’t searched for a local farmer, you should!  Then, whip up some delicious ground beef recipes like this Beef Carnitas Bowls or the following Cheesy Italian Beef Pasta Casserole Recipe.

Instructions:

  1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef.  As it’s browning, I like to season with about 1/2 teaspoon of each: onion salt, garlic salt, seasoning salt, and pepper.
  2. As the meat is browning, cook pasta in a large pot according to instructions on the box.  Drain but do NOT rinse.  Set aside.
  3. In the large skillet or a pot, combine cooked ground beef, cream cheese, chicken soup, Italian seasoning mix, taco seasoning, tomatoes with green chili peppers, cheeses, and milk.  Stir well until combined and cheeses are fully melted.
