Ground Pork Fiesta #Recipe

#affiliate links
Ground pork is so much cheaper than ground beef, but I've had a hard time coming up with recipes that really use it well. I finally came up with Ground Pork Fiesta and it's amazing! My husband insisted I write this one down and share it on my blog so I never lose (or forget) the recipe. The links in the directions are the products I actually used. Enjoy!

Ground Pork Fiesta

Ingredients:
1 lb ground pork
8 oz tri-color rotini noodles
2 cans cheddar cheese soup
1 can petite diced tomatoes
2 tbsp jalepeno slices
salt and pepper

Directions:
In a large skillet, brown the ground pork, chopping it into little pieces as it cooks. At the same time, boil water in a saucepan for the tri-color rotini noodles. Add a few dashes of salt and pepper to the pork while it browns. Add a few dashes of salt to the noodle water. When the ground pork is cooked, do not drain it. Turn the heat down to low and add 2 cans of cheddar cheese soup to the skillet of pork and stir. About this time, the water will be ready for the noodles, so add them to the boiling water. Add 1 can petite diced tomatoes to the skillet and stir. Stir the noodles so they don't stick together and cook noodles until tender. Pull out 2 tbsp of jalapeno slices from a jar (the store-bought ones are already soft from sitting in the juice, so I use those) and add them to the skillet. As you stir the jalepenos into the mixture, chop them up a bit. When the noodles are tender, drain the water from the saucepan and add the noodles to the skillet gently so you don't break the noodles. Serve on plates. Serves 4 very hungry people.
