Yeast Package

In a large skillet, combine the ground meat, diced onion, olive oil, and minced garlic over medium heat. If using ground beef, skip the olive oil.


Brown the meat in one large chunk to get a nice crisp on the bottom, then break it up and brown the rest of the meat. 


Add the broth, tomatoes, milk, tomato paste, and taco seasoning to the meat, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.


Add in the pasta and mix, then cover the pan and simmer over medium low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.


As the pasta cooks, grate the cheeses. Once the pasta is tender, take the pot off the heat and stir in the shredded cheese until fully melted.


Serve hot with cilantro and sour cream garnish if desired, and enjoy!
