Taco in a Pan

1 lb ground beef
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. green peppers, chopped
2 c. water
1 1/4 oz pkg taco seasoning mix

  28. Thank you for a chance to win, much appreciated.. Homemade bread is my weakness and my comfort, can't wait to see what is up.

  29. I love skillet dinners. I live in a warm climate so anytime I do not have to turn on my oven is wonderful. I make an excellent beef stronoff.

  30. I coat chicken in egg/milk, then in ritz crackers or cornflakes and Parmesan cheese...and bake til golden brown and chicken is done.

    Its delicious...and my guys LOVE it!

  31. I like a One-pot pasta meal that is very versatile... pasta, cream of mushroom or chicken soup, cheese, garlic, onions/onion powder, and whatever leftover meat & veggies one has on hand... if you cook the pasta in an equal amount of water, the water is almost gone by the time the pasta is cooked (although I add extra water if I'm cooking veggies with the pasta). Just have to watch it for sticking. :)

  32. When I first saw the Stovetop posts I ignored them thinking, "I don't use Stove Top," but then a picture caught my eye and I have been looking ever since.

  33. My family loves a meatball and noodle dish I make with sour cream, cream cheese, beef broth and italian spices!
