Everyone should have at least one fast and easy recipe for ground beef, and this one is a good one to add to your repertoire. Make it ahead (and in a double batch, if desired) and keep it in the refrigerator or freezer so it's ready when you are. Use it a filling for tacos or burritos, as a sauce for spaghetti or other pasta shapes, or as a topping for nachos. It can also be layered into lasagna or other baked casseroles.
