10+ Ground Beef Recipes With Few Ingredients
Skip the grocery store run: These easy ground beef recipes come together with a few ingredients you might already have in your pantry. Whether you're in the mood for a classic Italian dinner (like this 5-Ingredient Extra-Easy Lasagna) or a new, comforting dish (this Heavenly Taco Pie fits the bill), you're going to want to bookmark this collection.
Quick and Easy Nachos
This platter of goodness represents the lowest-effort end of the homemade nachos spectrum. That said, “low-effort”—by no stretch of the imagination—means a low YUM-factor here. This game day-perfect platter of beefy, cheesy nachos comes together quickly and relies largely on store-bought shortcuts.
The Cheeseburger Salad
Classic burger elements become a fast, fun salad--a deconstructed take on a diner favorite. Instead of four burger patties, we cook just two, then chop and sprinkle them over the top. A handful of crushed potato chips adds crunch. Kick up the dressing with a pinch of ground red pepper.
Super Fast Upside-Down Shepherd's Pie
When we say easy, we mean easy. You don't even have to cook the noodles for this speedy yet impressive lasagna that always gets rave reviews. Lasagna is a family favorite, but this version is extra-special because it only requires 5 quick ingredients.
Spaghetti and Easy Meatballs
Look no further for the ultimate, easy chili recipe. You may think you know how to make chili, but our homemade chili recipe is a gamechanger. With just a push of a button, your weekday dinner is taken care of as the chili cooks away in the slow-cooker.
Easy Taco Soup
In addition to being super simple, this easy taco soup recipe makes a lot of food, meaning you won’t have to worry about lunch or dinner for the next few days. Most of the ingredients are already in your pantry, so everything comes together quickly.
Heavenly Taco Pie
This taco pie is a great alternative to a build-your-own taco bar. It can be made ahead of time and baked off right before the party. Just slice it up and set out some traditional toppings, buffet-style so everyone can customize. Be sure to let it stand before serving, as that’s the key to everything holding together.
If there’s anything that says grade-A comfort food better than a bacon cheeseburger-inspired bake, we don’t know what it is. This family-friendly casserole is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to serve dinner for a crowd (the recipe is easily doubled or tripled).
Beef Ragù With Zucchini Fettucine
This low-cal feast will make you forget you're on a dieat. You won't even miss the carbs--the zucchini fettucine gives you all the flavor you'd expect from a hearty pasta.
