This family friendly recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes.  This recipe is filled with plenty of wholesome hearty ingredients like beef, onions, garlic and rotini pasta.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/21 small jalapeno finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 (14.5) ounce can salsa style tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth (or chicken)
  • 2 cups uncooked rotini pasta
  • Tomatoes
  • Sour Cream
  • Cheddar


  1. In large stock pot brown ground beef. About halfway through the browning process drain any excess fat; add onion and jalapeno. Over medium heat cook for 4-5 minutes. Lower heat; add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add taco seasoning, salsa style tomatoes, beef broth and rotini pasta.
  2. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Top with tomatoes, sour cream, cheddar cheese and if desired jalapeno slices.


  • Use fairly lean ground beef and drain any excess fat.
  • Chop your onion fairly fine and mince your jalapeno and garlic.
  • Use good quality taco seasoning. I love to use Spice Islands Taco seasoning which I purchase from Costco.  It has such great flavor.
  • Salsa style or fire roasted tomatoes can be found with the other canned tomatoes at your local grocery store.
  • Cover and cook the dish just until the pasta is tender.
  • Top with any or all of your favorites right before serving warm.  Are you serving for a small crowd? Make a small toppings bar with assorted shredded cheeses, sour cream, black olives, green onions, diced tomatoes or chopped avocados.
