Tex-Mex Goulash

Whenever I make my Italian Pot Roast, I always make Macaroni Beef Sauté the next day. The pot roast uses tomato juice, and the only other recipe I have with tomato juice is the Macaroni Beef Sauté. I decided to mix up the flavors in the original sauté recipe and give it a Tex-Mex twist.

I added taco seasoning, black beans, corn and diced tomatoes and green chiles. The changes were delicious! We loved it! This only takes a few minutes to whip together and is on the table is under 30 minutes. Can't beat that! I used a can of Rotel in this dish, and it has a little kick of heat. If you are sensitive to heat, please make sure to buy mild Rotel.
