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!

  6. Patio Dining beneath the stars. When the weather's fine, some Mexican establishments offer patio dining, either covered or uncovered. Talk about ambience! The atmosphere is positively balmy and relaxing while music floats outside to lull diners into a state of euphoria. mexican food Austin
