Mexican Stewed Noodles

    45 minutes

    This is a great winter comfort food, almost like a stew. Beef, olives, tomatoes, beans, corn and noodles make a great meal. Serve with sour cream.

    I got on here one day and just wanted a different recipe to use up some noodles and hamburger. What I ended up was a family favorite. I changed the recipe just a little to fit my ingredients I had by using a quart jar of tomato juice (I can my own), 12 ounce bag of noodles instead of 16 oz., and home frozen corn (2c) instead of a can of corn. And so far we've made this three times in a month and everyone loves it. thanks again!  -  18 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My husband and I loved this recipe! It was filling, but not too heavy. Since there are just 2 of us we had leftovers that were just as tasty as the night that it was prepared. Very easy to prepare just make sure you have a large pan to fit all the ingredients. I will definetly be fixing this again.  -  14 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was just okay for me. I kept referring back to the recipe to see if I had left something out - it was a bit too dry for our tastes. I'm really a fan of 1-pot meals so I *wanted* to love it, but it was missing something. Not sure what. Maybe next time more spices and a can of tomato sauce. Sorry. :-(  -  22 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
