Between housesitting for ten days, looking for a new place to live, and packing, we have been insanely busy.
I haven’t taken the time to visit my little corner of the internet nearly as much as I’d like, so I thought I would at least do a favorite recipe post. We still gotta eat, right?
The main reason I love this recipe so much is it is so versatile.
Another reason it’s awesome is it has three different vegetables in it and half the time the kids don’t notice, (I’d love to say they never notice, but that is too big a claim.)
Lastly, I love this recipe because it freezes spectacularly, (that’s right, “spectacularly.”)
You will need:
1 pound ground beef (or ground turkey)
1/2 chopped bell pepper
1/2 diced onion
2 grated carrots
The smaller you cut everything, the better you hide it from the kids…Throw everything in a pan and cook.Depending on your plans for this mix determines your seasonings.
When I make it, I double or triple the recipe and freeze all of the leftovers in quart sized freezer bags. Label it clearly, flatten it out, and toss it in the freezer.
You can add this to anything you would normally make with ground beef. Spaghetti, chili, lasagna, quesadillas…you get the idea….
I’ve made this for many a Fantasy Football parties and it has always been a hit!
What’s your favorite go to recipe?
