Homemade Chili Mac

Thursday, May 15, 2014

I was raised on Hamburger Helper...I actually liked it! But as I got older I figured out the convenience was great...but there was better tasting meals out there. I have also learned it's not any harder to make a version that is healthier, cheaper and more filling!! So...it took some tweaks but I finally found an easy version that my son goes back for THIRDS and thanks me for the yummy dinner...that is super awesome!!

Homemade Chili Mac

1 lb ground beef
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can red beans
1 can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp cumin (or to taste)
1.5 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1.5 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (I use gluten free)

Brown ground beef, add seasoning then cans of bean, tomatoes and sauce. Over medium heat add uncooked noodles and then turn down the heat and cover and cook for 30 min or until noodles are cooked through (gluten free seems to take a bit longer) we top with shredded cheese and pica de gallo!
