INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pkg (250 g) GEOVITA Wheat, Barley & Oat Blend
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1 lb (500 g) lean ground beef, turkey or chicken
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) taco seasoning blend (from a packet or homemade)
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) sodium-reduced beef or chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup (150 mL) prepared salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) grated Cheddar cheese
  • Optional garnishes such as additional salsa, sour cream, avocado, chopped green onions, sliced jalapeno, crumbled nacho chips, etc.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet set over medium heat. Add beef and seasoning blend; cook, crumbling meat until browned.
  3. Stir in Geovita blend, broth and salsa until well combined. Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  4. Serve with a selection of optional garnishes at the table to add as preferred.

Tips:

  • If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, transfer the skillet mixture to a 10-cup (2.5 L) casserole dish to bake.
  • Boost nutrition for kids who don’t like their veggies by sneaking in grated veggies such as carrots or zucchini when browning the ground meat base.
  • Replace meat with your favourite plant-based crumble and use vegetable broth instead. Or, sub in 1 can (540 mL) black or kidney beans and skip the browning step altogether.
