Chili Mac

I have been making this dish for 25 years; it is so simple and quick and it’s all done in the same pan; which means fewer dishes to wash. We love to top it with cheddar cheese and for a kick you can add hot sauce that is the way Richard likes to eat his. So give this dish a try I know that it will become a family favorite just like it has been in mine.

Chili Mac
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 cups elbow macaroni; uncooked
1 (15oz.) can tomato sauce or 1 can diced tomatoes
2 cups water
1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Brown ground beef and onions in a large skillet drain. Add macaroni and tomato sauce, water and seasonings. Cover and let simmer. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and add more water when necessary. Cook until macaroni is softened (about 20 minutes).Pin It
