Sombrero Skillet


Our Sombrero Pasta is a sweet and spicy Mexican-inspired salad. Add in ground beef and extra cheese, and you have a hearty entree everyone will love. Make it extra special by topping it off with sour cream, salsa and crushed corn chips. 


  • 1 (5 lb.) container Mrs. Gerry's Sombrero Pasta Salad
  • 2 lbs. ground beef, browned, crumbled and drained
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 12 oz. shredded Cheddar Jack cheese
  • Sour cream, salsa and crushed corn chips (optional)


  1. Brown ground beef with salt; drain off grease. 
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, and heat over medium low heat to 165° to 180°F, stirring often to prevent sticking. 
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spoon hot mixture into lightly greased 4-inch deep half pan. Spread with Cheddar Jack cheese.
  4. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
