  • 1clove garlicminced
  • 16oz ground meatof your choice
  • salt and pepper to taste(optional for omnivore version)
  • 6oz short pastaof your choice
  • 2-1/2cups brothor water
  • 15oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 taco seasoningsee notes above on how to make your own
  • 1 red bell pepperchopped
  • 11oz can of corn
  • 15oz can of black beansoptional for vegan/vegetarian version
  • 1bunch cilantrochopped
  • 1cup shredded cheeseof your choice
  • 1 jalapenooptional, chopped and seeded
  • 1/2cup olivesblack, sliced, optional
  • avocadooptional, chopped, add right before eating
  1. Add 1 TBSP oil of your choice to a large skillet over medium heat, followed by the onion and garlic. Cook and stir often for about 5 minutes or until fragrant.
  2. Add the ground meat at this point with salt and pepper to taste and cook the meat, breaking it up and stirring often, for about 7 minutes until it’s completely cooked through.
  3. Add the pasta, water and diced tomatoes with 1/2 a packet of taco seasoning to the skillet. Stir well and bring to a boil. Cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes, until the pasta is fully cooked through. The extra water will evaporate as it cooks (and it’s okay if there’s some left). If the pan looks dry and the pasta is really sticking to the bottom of the pan, add more water.
  4. When the pasta is done, add the bell pepper, corn, black beans, cilantro, cheese olives and jalapeno. You can also add more taco seasoning (1-2 tsp) if desired. Stir well and cook for five minutes on medium/low heat.
  5. Assemble: divide the mixture between three meal prep containers. Top with any remaining cilantro leaves for garnish.
