Good recipe, but not quite enough liquid to cook my noodles. I used egg noodles, maybe that made a difference. Either way, I added what I needed and it turned out well. Did add more seasoning though, as well as garlic and a few chopped chipotle peppers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook beef and onion in a large skillet until the meat is brown and the onion is tender. Soak up the excess fat with a paper towel, and rinse the meat and onion mixture in a colander.
  2. Rinse the beans and add to the skillet. Stir in the tomatoes, sauce, macaroni and spices. Bring the mixture to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer the meal, covered, and stir often for 15-20 minutes - or until the macaroni is tender.
  3. Remove the skillet from the stove and sprinkle the cheese over the mixture. Let the cheese melt for about two minutes and serve.
