This week we’re bringing you some Texas-friendly dinner ideas that can be cooked with ingredients you’re likely to have at home.

Most of the recipes use just a few items from the pantry and ground beef, which can be stored in the freezer for three to four months without losing flavor or nutrition. (It’s also great for budget-friendly meals.) First up, four ground beef-inspired recipes, followed by three family favorite make-ahead meals.
