Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 8 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey or lean ground beef
  • 1 16-oz. jar tomato salsa
  • 1 15-oz. can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips, optional

Preparation

  1. 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook pasta until just tender, about 8 minutes or as package label directs. Drain.
  2. 2. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, breaking up chunks with a wooden spoon, until meat loses its pink color, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3. Stir in salsa and tomato sauce and bring to a simmer. Stir in pasta and cook until bubbling, about 3 minutes. Stir in cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese has melted, about 1 minute longer. Spoon into bowls, top with avocado and chips, if desired, and serve.
