Chili Mac Recipe

1 lb lean ground beef (I use lean ground turkey)

1 small to medium onion, chopped

1 bell pepper (any color), chopped

3-4 cloves garlic, pressed

2 cups pasta (like elbow macaroni  or I use Heartland 100% Whole Wheat Rotini), uncooked

2 cans – 14.5 diced tomatoes (or 1 -28 ounce can) undrained

1 cup water

2 tsp. cumin

1 Tablespoon chili powder

salt and pepper

1 – 2 cups grated cheddar cheese

In large skillet, brown meat (remove excess fat if necessary). Add onion, peppers and garlic, cook until vegetables are tender. Stir in spices and heat a minute until fragrant. Add water, tomatoes and uncooked pasta. Cover and simmer 20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Uncover and cook another 5 minutes, sprinkle grated cheese on top.  Enjoy!
