Velveeta beef skillet is a recipe that I found a few years ago on the Kraft website. After a bunch of modifications and adaptions I am very satisfied with the recipe. I don't have a lot of recipes that the main ingredient is ground beef so I am always looking for something new. The original recipe was a lot healthier but that just didn't work for us!

Velveeta beef skillet is simple enough to make after work and the best part is...it only requires one skillet. That means less dishes to wash. Works for me.

If you prefer, you can add more chili powder or Velveeta depending on your tastes. I typically serve garlic bread with this dish. Velveeta beef skillet is even good left over. Perfect for lunch the next day.
