Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make an equally delicious and quick meal by substituting ground turkey breast for the ground beef.
  • tip 2
    For 7 grams of fat and 340 calories per serving, use 3/4 pound extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef and 1 1/2 cups Bisquick Heart Smart® mix.
  • tip 3
    Complete this easy meal with a salad of sliced oranges, sliced avocado and red onion rings drizzled with your favorite vinaigrette dressing.
