Mexican Skillet Dinner

My sister gave me this awesome cookbook that is all low fat cooking and we tried this one out on company and it was soooo good! It was really fast and hit the spot. We added tortilla chips to finish it off and we will definitely be making it again!


1 lb. ground turkey
2 cans Mexican style diced tomatoes or regular diced tomatoes
1 can corn
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
8 ounces macaroni
1 1/3 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
tortillas or tortilla chips

1. Place the ground turkey in a large deep soup pot and cook over medium heat stirring to crumble until the meat is no longer oink. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir to mix well.
2. Bring the mixture to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer stirring occasionally for 10-12 minutes or until pasta is tender and the liquid ans been absorbed. *If there is still a bit of liquid left over, remove the cover and simmer for a few more minutes.
3.To plate: put mixture on plate or bowl top with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and crumbled chips. YUM!

* Use chips to scoop too! Warm tortillas on the side would be yummy and you can add any of your favorite taco toppings!

  1. This does look yummy. I like that you made a mistake and said to cook the turkey until it is no longer "oink". How fun is that! : )
