Beef and Kasha Mexicana


Beef and Kasha Mexicana


1 In 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in kasha until kernels are moistened by beef mixture.

2 Stir in tomatoes, chiles, taco seasoning mix, corn and water. Heat to boiling. Cover; reduce heat to low. Simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until kasha is tender.

3 Sprinkle cheese over kasha mixture. Cover; cook 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with cilantro and olives.

Betty Tip

This tasty main dish combines whole-grain kasha with beef and uses familiar Mexican ingredients. It's a great transition recipe, when you're just starting to eat grains. You can also use this mixture as a filling for tortillas.
