Simple Saturday and Sunday - Ground meat Veggie mix

This meat/veggie mix is a staple at our house - It is usually made with either ground turkey or ground beef - but have used sausage in the past as well. When I make it, it is divided in half and the 2nd half is put in the freezer for a quick meal at another time. Use one 1/2 of this mixture like you would use one pound of ground meat in a recipe.

Ground Meat/Veggie Mix

1 lb ground meat (beef, turkey, pork, sausage)
1 onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, seeded and chopped (any colors will work)
1 t. chopped garlic

Brown ground meat with veggies. Drain/blot off any excess fat/liquid.

Seasoning varies on what it is to become, so I usually only season the half that I'm using. Chopped jalapenos and/or chili powder and cumin for tacos/enchiladas, Italian seasoning for spaghetti, etc. I have used this in:
Sloppy joes
Tortilla Soup
Cheeseburger Macaroni
Beef and Noodles
Tator Tot Casserole
