In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onion until softening and lightly browning.
Add meat to the pot and cook until just cooked through. Season with taco seasoning and mix.
Add tomatoes, liquid, and noodles to the pot. Bring to a rolling boil.
Reduce heat to a strong simmer. Cook until noodles are soft – it will still be slightly liquidy, but let it sit for a few minutes and it will thicken.
I prepare my own taco seasoning by combining in a jar 1 tablespoon (or more) chili, 1 tablespoon cumin, 1 tablespoon smoky paprika, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, freshly ground pepper, and, optionally, 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast and 1/2 teaspoon chipotle (optional). I keep this on the mild side so my kids will eat it!

This was a hit and took less than 45 minutes to make! I only had a little over 1 pound of ground beef and it was plenty. I did drain the liquid fat after browning the beef. For the non dairy milk I used unsweetened almond milk and coconut milk blend. Definitely will be making this again.
