Mexican Bowl

It's Taco Tuesday!!! Quite often, I like to go with a Mexican theme on Tuesdays just to say the name haha ;). I first saw this recipe on Pinterest and decided to adapt it tonight.

Mexican Bowl - serves 4

1/2 lb. lean ground beef
2 cups macaroni 
1 can tomato sauce (398mL)
2 cups homemade salsa 
1 Roma tomato, diced
1 cup corn kernels
*optional* 1 cup black beans
3/4 cup shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese mix
1 avocado, halved, pealed and diced
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat oven to 350F. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown ground beef in a large skillet. Stir in tomato sauce and salsa. Add pasta, tomato, corn, and beans if using, and gently toss to combine. Stir in most of the cheese and pour into a casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake in oven until slightly golden and bubbly, approximately 8 minutes, broiling for the last 2 minutes if desired. Serve with avocado and cilantro sprinkled on top.
