    14 Mouthwatering Recipes To Use For Ground Beef

    Ditch that Hamburger Helper and get cookin' on one of these!

    So you've mastered the fine art of browning ground beef — but you're getting pretty sick of Hamburger Helper or making those super basic tacos. No prob, fam — we've got 10 ways to step up your beef game, stat:

    1. One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff


    The 1/4 cup of dry sherry is what makes this recipe stand out from the box type, and it's soooo worth it.

    2. Beef & Bean Burritos


    The easiest way to get your Tex-Mex fill: All you need is taco seasoning, a can of refried beans, shredded cheese, tortillas, and ground beef.

    3. BBQ Bacon Meatballs


    This party pleaser is half ground beef and half ground sausage, wrapped in bacon. What more could you want?

    4. Mexican Chorizo Burger


    This is a fun, spiced up twist on the usual burger scenario — plus, you can slather it in guac.

    5. Chipotle Chili and Cornbread Dumplings


    You can make (and eat, tbh) all of this with one pot.

    6. Taco Pizza


    Because no one should have to choose between the two.

    7. Taco-Stuffed Peppers


    For everyone who secretly believes roasted peppers are the shiiiiiit.

    8. The Shackburger


    If you have a cast-iron griddle, you definitely can make your own version of Shake Shack's finest.

    9. Penne Alla Vodka


    Everyone needs to be able to master one pasta sauce from scratch by the time they're an adult — let this one be yours! It's ridiculously easy.

    10. Sloppy Joe Sliders


    Just like the ones you had in school, but waaaaay better.

    11. Cheese-stuffed Burger Dogs


    No one else's cookout game will be able to beat this, we guarantee.

    12. 100-Layer Lasagna


    If you make this, please @ us and invite us over for dinner, okay??

    13. Meatball Bread Boat


    Like a meatball sub, but 1000% fancier.

    14. And finally, good ol' fashioned Swedish meatballs.


    Make 'em by the batch, and then freeze them for all of your pasta dinner needs.
