Avocados and burgers and bacon with ranch dressing … these are a few of our favorite things! Get them all together in this yummy skillet dinner.

Ingredients

3
strips thick-cut bacon, chopped
1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
6
green onions, thinly sliced, greens and whites separated
1
teaspoon chili powder
2
cups milk
1
cup hot water
1
box Hamburger Helper™ cheeseburger macaroni
1
cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (4 oz)
1/4
cup ranch dressing
1
avocado, pitted, peeled and cubed
1/2
cup crushed tortilla chips
2
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon; place in small bowl. Add beef and green onion whites to bacon drippings in skillet; cook over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2 Stir in chili powder, milk, hot water, and uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper™ box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 9 to 11 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender.
  • 3 Remove from heat. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and let stand 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Drizzle with ranch dressing. Sprinkle with bacon, green onion greens, avocado, tortilla chips and cilantro.
Tips  

Look for avocados that are firm, but yield to gentle pressure. If they are not quite ripe, place avocados in a paper bag, and let ripen at room temperature.

Can’t find shredded pepper Jack cheese? A shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend makes a fine substitute.
