I love dishes I can make in one pot, easier to cook and easier to clean. It’s just so much easier on weeknights when you don’t have all the time in the world. Kind of like my easy and delicious viral recipe, the Tex-Mex skillet.
Speaking of easy and delicious meals, I have a delicious recipe to share with you today. An Enchilada skillet, a pasta skillet filled with diced tomatoes, ground hamburger, cheese, and a delicious homemade enchilada sauce.
This recipe is so easy for a weeknight, but delicious enough that you can serve it to guests. We had friends over when we I made this and they loved it as much as we did. I served it with some from scratch biscuits.
You can’t really go wrong with pasta, cheese, and delicious tomatoes, it’s basically the basis of every great pasta dish. We topped these with black olives and green onions, and Aliceana could not get enough of the black olives. Which is pretty fitting since AJ and I love black olives as well.
It reheats really well too. We definitely enjoyed it as leftovers. My husband declared that this skillet goes into our meal plan rotation, it’s good enough to eat every week (although I probably won’t make it quite that often, maybe every other week.)
It’s such am easy dish to make, just let all the ingredients simmer, and add cheese once the pasta is tender.
We love having lots of cheese on top!
