Ingredients

  • 12-16 oz tortellini
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 15 oz can black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 15 oz can corn kernels drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • sour cream for garnish
  • green onions thinly sliced, for garnish
  • fresh cilantro leaves roughly chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  • Cook the tortellini according to the package directions, until al dente. Transfer to a colander to drain completely.
  • While the tortellini is coming to a boil and cooking, get started on the ground beef. In a large over safe skillet, brown the ground beef.
  • Break the ground beef up as it cooks. When completely cooked through, drain the skillet of any excess grease.
  • Sprinkle the taco seasoning out over the beef, and stir. Next pour the broth & enchilada sauce over top, and stir together until the seasoning is completely incorporated in to the thin sauce.
  • Stir in the beans, corn, and tortellini until evenly incorporated. Heat the skillet over medium heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let the mixture simmer for 1-2 minutes, just until everything's heated through and the sauce has thickened.
  • Stir the mixture well. Sprinkle the cheese evenly out over the top, and transfer the skillet to the oven. Broil, watching carefully, just until the cheese has melted- shouldn't take but a minute or so.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven, and top it with sour cream, green onion, and cilantro- if using- for garnishes.
  • Serve & enjoy!
