 Try adding the following to make:

Ragu Chili

Add in sautéed onions, chili powder and red kidney beans. Serve over rice and top with cheddar cheese.

Quick Burrito

Add in sautéed veggies such as bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini and onions, about 4 tsp. chili powder and some canned corn. Serve rolled in flour tortillas, which you can bake when anybody is ready to eat.

Sloppy Joe

Increase the ground beef to 2 lbs., then add in sautéed onions, about 1/2 cup of brown sugar and some sweet relish. Serve on whole-wheat hamburger buns.

Taco Salad

Add in sautéed veggies like bell peppers, corn or black beans. Serve over a bed of lettuce with tortilla chips.
