Cooking Light MAY 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups prepared mashed potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)
  • 3/4 pound ground sirloin
  • 3/4 cup picante sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) preshredded reduced-fat extrasharp cheddar cheese

Preparation

Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions; keep warm.

Cook beef in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in picante sauce, water, cumin, sugar, salt, and beans; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until mixture thickens (about 5 minutes).

Remove from heat. Spoon mashed potatoes over meat mixture, and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and let stand 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

Note:

Prepared mashed potatoes are found in the refrigerated section of larger grocers. They only need a few minutes in the microwave to reheat.
