Easy Southwestern skillet dinner

1 lb gr. beef
1 jar salsa
2 cups uncooked wagon wheel pasta (I only had rotini kind and still used it, so I doubt it's that important. )
1/2 cup sour cream (although I think I used more too.)

Brown ground beef. Drain.

Stir in 1 cup water, salsa, pasta, teaspoon of salt. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low.

Cover and simmer about 10 mins, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Stir in sour cream, cook just til hot.

Top off with tortilla chips!

Hamburger soup

Yes, I've fallen out of the blog-o-sphere lately. Sorry about that. But I just had to share this amazing recipe with ya'll. I made a double batch last night, hoping to freeze some, but I doubt there will even be enough left for leftovers tomorrow.

I got it from my friend Linda Pope. Enjoy!!!

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 c.each carrots and celery, chopped
2 c. potatoes, chopped
2 c. water with 1 beef bouillon cube
1 qt tomato juice
salt and pepper

Brown beef and onion. Put in a pot along with carrots, celery, potatoes, water and bouillon. Simmer until tender. Add tomato juice, salt and pepper to taste.

Easy, right? And soooo yummy. I substituted some tomato juice with diced tomatoes and it was still wonderful.
