A wonderful one-skillet meal that's very tasty, and even tastes better if left for next day

Sorry, Kittencal... out of all of the wonderful recipes of yours I have tried and liked, I have to give this one a pass. I don't know if it was the type of chili I used, or the kind of canned tomatoes I used, but I found this recipe to be bland and mostly flavorless. I was able to help it a bit with some salt and some Pace Hot, but overall, I didn't care for it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, cook ground beef with onion, bell pepper until no longer pink; drain fat then add in garlic and chili flakes and continue cooking until the meat is browned (this may take about 10-12 minutes to brown the meat).
  2. Stir in canned chili beans, tomatoes with juice, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream and chili powder.
  3. Mix the mixture with cooked pasta, until well coated then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup shredded cheese.
  5. Cover and cook in the same skillet for 20 minutes on med-low heat, until bubbly.
