Mexican Twist

     Mr. Food brings us this easy, kid approved, one-pot meal that is ideal for camping and surprisingly good.  If you want to spice it up a bit, use Mexicorn and tomatoes with green chilies and if you're worried about the salt, Ortega now makes a low-sodium taco spice mix.  I browned the beef and onion in my 10 inch dutch oven over a full compliment of coals.  After adding the remaining ingredients I covered the oven with 14 coals on the lid and let it simmer for 25 minutes until the pasta was tender and most of the liquid was absorbed. 

Mexican Twist
1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
4 cups water
1 15 ounce can whole kernel corn, drained
1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 (1 ounce each) envelopes dry taco seasoning mix
10 ounces (little more than half a box) rotini pasta, uncooked

     Lightly oil or spray dutch oven.
     Saute beef and onion over a full compliment of coals until beef is brown and onion is tender.
     Add remaining ingredients, mix well, making sure pasta is completely submerged in liquid.
     Simmer at a strong bubble for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway, until pasta is cooked and most of the liquid is absorbed.
     Makes 4 servings.

  1. Really good. Kids loved it too. Easy camping meal! Used Penne we had on hand, which we liked thinking rotini might have been a little too much pasta. Will definitely have it again! Another great one! THANKS!
