Monday Munchies: Beef and Salsa Skillet

Posted in Monday Munchies

I found this recipe online years ago, and I no longer remember where it’s from. It’s another fairly cheap, and super easy meal. Plus there are A LOT of leftovers for lunch the next couple of days.

Beef and Salsa Skillet

What You Need (Serves up to 4)

  • 1 lb ground beef (I prefer 92/8% fat distribution, but go with whatever you like best)
  • 1 16oz Jar Old El Paso Thick ‘n Chunky Salsa (This is getting harder and harder to find. My second choice is Pace Chunky Salsa) in the spiciness level of your choice

  • 1 15/16oz can of Whole Kernel Sweet Corn
  • 1 8oz can of Tomato Sauce

Monday Munchies: Mac & Cheese & Cheetos

Posted in Monday Munchies

Let me preface this by saying that I never promised these recipes would be healthy. This is a holdover from my high school/college days. I rarely eat it now, because my body protests if I over indulge, but I still love it.

In high school, it was common to have the lunch lady ladle nacho cheese into a bag of hot cheetos. That combination was heavenly. But getting perfectly melted nacho cheese at home can be difficult, so I experimented, and eventually settled on mac & cheese & cheetos. I have no idea how this would taste with regular cheetos, but you’re welcome to experiment if you aren’t a fan of spicy food.

As a side note, the photo shows standard Kraft mac & cheese, because they were out of the shell version, which, in my opinion, is much better. So follow the recipe, not the photo.
