I seem to spend a lot of time on the computer. Most nights, I sit on the couch, watching TV, with the laptop in my lap. Mainly I play Candy Crush and browse Pinterest.
For the most part, I look at food on Pinterest. I have about 250 pins of things that I think look delicious and makeable. This is one of those pins.
I want to say that I got this from jesser, but I'm not really sure. I mentioned it to J, and he thought I needed to make this sooner rather than later. With packages of tortellini in the freezer, why not.
I present to you now Picky Palate's Chili Tortellini:
1 lb frozen tortelliniAdapted from Picky Palate
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 large, finely chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef
Salt and Pepper
4 c chicken broth
2 - 15 oz. cans beans (I used all black beans)
1-15 oz. can Rotel
2 Tbsp Taco seasoning
1. Heat oil in a large pan or Dutch Oven. Add onion and garlic, stirring frequently, until translucent. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Add broth, beans, tomatoes and seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
2. Add tortellini, cover and simmer until tortellini is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
I chopped my onion much more finely than usual. I think a rougher chop would work in this too. Like chili, this came out almost as a soup.
