1 tsp Olive oil
1 large Onion, chopped
3 medium cloves Garlic, chopped

2 TBSP Cajun seasoning
1 lb. 95% lean Ground Beef
1 (28-oz.) can peeled Italian Tomatoes
1 cup fat-free Salsa

  1. In a large nonstick saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, green chiles, and Cajun seasoning and cook for about 1 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the beef and cook for about 8 minutes, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon.
