Dinner in 15 minutes- A.J.'s Skillet Meal

You can literally have dinner made in 15 minutes with this easy and yummy recipe. My friend A.J. gave me this recipe in January 2004. A.J. is from the mid-west. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and 3 girls. She is a godly woman and friend. I miss her dearly.

This is a go-to, fast, and reliable meal. It has a small list of ingredients and takes just a few minutes in the kitchen. Thank you A.J.!!! We have been making this dish for over 7 years.

A.J's Skillet Meal

Add hamburger meat to a large skillet and add your diced onion. I didn't have an onion so, I used minced onion this time. Season with garlic salt or salt and pepper.

Brown your hamburger meat and drain.

Add tomatoes. (do not drain) Add water.

Stir. Bring to a boil.

Add macaroni and turn to simmer.

Put lid on skillet and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add shredded cheese.

Put lid back on skillet so cheese melts real pretty. Once cheese has melted, add a large dollop of sour cream.

Stir. Serve accordingly.

Even if you do not care for sour cream, I would highly recommend that you use it in this particular recipe. Results = creamy!!! The sour cream adds an extra layer of flavor. You cannot taste the sour cream.
