Add something spicy to your family’s Mexican cuisine night. Enjoy this ground beef casserole packed with pinto beans and salsa – a cheesy meal!
10-inch skillet; 2-quart baking pan or casserole
For 18 grams of fat and 465 calories per serving, substitute ground turkey for the beef and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese for the Monterey Jack cheese.
For a flavor with more zip, use Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers or, as it's also known, pepper Jack cheese.
To spice up the flavor, next time try a higher spice level of salsa. If it is too hot, cool it with sour cream. Salsa comes in mild, hot and extra-hot.
Rinse and drain the beans in a strainer. Rinsing canned beans results in a cleaner taste and can reduce digestive problems.
