    This is something my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. It is simple, quick, and great for kids and adults alike.

      3 of us ate this tonight and we all say 5*s. Something like hamburger helper but so much better. I only used 1 rounded teaspoon chili powder and it was just right for us. This would easily feed 6 people, I have enough left over to feed 3 of us tomorrow. A very good and cheap recipe to make.

      This was really good, but next time I'll reduce the amount of chili powder for my son. It was just spicy enough for me.
