This recipe initially called for a box of hamburger helper taco style, but I never buy the stuff. This is my version of that recipe.
1 lb ground beef
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 cups rotini pasta
1 cup beef broth
1 cup spicy chili beans in sauce (I used homemade)
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
any seasonings you like or a packet of taco seasoning mix (chili powder, cumin and garlic powder would be good)
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup sour cream
In a large frying pan, brown beef and onion over medium high heat; drain well.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer about 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or til pasta is tender and mixture is thickened. If mixture hasn't thickened as you like it, let stand a few minutes.
I served the taco dinner garnished with cheese, chips and sour cream.
