This is such an easy meal, and it’s so kid-friendly even your pickest eater will eat it.
I call it a dump dish, because with the exception of browning the ground beef, you basically just throw everything in, and turn on the time. What can be easier, so this makes for a great mid-week lunch or dinner.
