CJACK1'S LIKE VELVEETA RO-TEL MAIN DISH
2 pounds ground beef
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
10 ounce can Ro-tel tomatoes (tomatoes with green chilies)
16 ounces cabbage, finely shredded, about 1/2 a medium cabbage *
8 ounces Deluxe American cheese, diced (not cheese food)
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with salt and pepper; drain the fat. Add the Ro-tel tomatoes, undrained, and the cabbage. Simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until the cabbage is tender. Stir occasionally. Add the cheese and stir in; heat on low until melted then stir in well.
Makes about 6 servings
Can be frozen
* The recipe originally called for a 10 ounce bag of angel hair cabbage, but I couldn't find that and shredded my own. I decided to use an even pound of cabbage. In the photo below you can see how I shredded mine. Not having seen angel hair cabbage, I can only guess that it would look similar.

This comes from someone with the nickname cjack1 at Low Carb Friends. This is not fancy food, but is a very easy one-pot dinner. The recipe didn't mention any seasoning so I didn't add any at first because I wasn't sure how much salt the tomatoes and cheese would add. I recommend seasoning the ground beef with the seasonings I've listed or to taste. After eating this dish, I think this could easily be varied with different sauces and vegetables. I may try a variation using an 8 ounce can of tomato sauce, instead of the Ro-tel tomatoes, and add some mushrooms, onions and garlic to the ground beef. A cheesy sloppy joe or Mexican variation might also be good.
If you can't get deluxe American cheese, and must use the individually wrapped "cheese food product", the counts would be as follows:
