Busy weeknights are no more with this easy and quick cheesy chilli mac.
1 lb ground beef
1 c. milk
1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce
1 c. beef broth
2 tbsp chilli powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp of salt
1 (10 oz.) can tomatoes with green chillies
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c. elbow noodles (I use Barilla gluten-free elbows)
How to make Easy Cheesy Chili Mac
Step 1: Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat until no longer brown. When done, drain the excess grease off.
Step 2: To the skillet, add the undrained can of tomatoes with green chillies along with broth, milk, tomato sauce, and spices.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to medium-high and continue to cook until the mixture starts to simmer.
Step 4: Add the noodles and stir. Adjust the heat to low, put the lid on, and cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes.
Step 5: Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese once the noodles are tender.
For this recipe, I used Barilla gluten-free elbows and cook them for precisely 18 minutes.
