This one-pot hearty meal can easily be altered to meet your family's tastes. Try subbing ground turkey breast for the beef and whole-wheat spirals or wagon wheels for the elbow macaroni.
"This was really good. I made it for my hamburger helper loving husband and he and our 3 kids ate ALOT of it. They all liked it. I used 1 lb. Ground beef, whole can of tomato sauce and 1 small can of the Chiles over 8 oz. Of pasta and a little garlic. I think that I would add more garlic next time and maybe some coriander."- Amberkroff

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is browned, about 10 minutes; drain off fat. Stir in undrained stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili peppers, chili powder and cumin; bring to a boil.
Stir in uncooked macaroni and kidney beans. Return to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until macaroni is tender, about 15 minutes.
To serve, spoon into bowls and sprinkle with grated topping. Yields about 1 1/4 cups of chili and 1 1/3 tablespoons of topping per serving.

Carsenis 3 years agoGreat recipe, easy to make, and easy to adjust recipe to your liking. I was out of cumin, so I used a packet of Sazon Goya instead and it was great!
dinadance 4 years agoEasy, tasty and filling. This is probably the only time I liked a dish I made with whole wheat pasta
wineguy818 4 years agoI just started on Weight Watchers yesterday and found this recipe on Big Oven so I thought I would give it a try. I thought it was a good recipe but I would alter it to your own specific taste as the recipe author suggested. I ended up using soy protein crumbles instead of ground beef beacause I had some on hand and wanted to use it up. I also increased the green chiles to 3 tablespoons but other than that I left it alone. I will make this again when I have a little time to play around with the recipe but I thank gbolton for a solid core recipe that is easy and quick to make.
