Delicious quick and easy. Ok so I'm a chicken and only used 1 tsp of chili powder but it was just the right amount of 'hot' for my family. I used fresh fettucine pasta and other than the smaller amount of chili powder followed the recipe to a T. Thanks for posting.

I made a few slight changes to the recipe to suit our tastes and we really enjoyed this meal. I used a whole box of elbow macaroni, I omitted the onions (I'm not a fan of onions), I used dices tomatoes rather than whole and I substituted the spices for about 3/4 package of taco seasoning. Easy quick meal. I also did add the kidney bean. Thanks for a great idea.

Thanks M&Mers for posting this recipe. My husband enjoyed this and so did one of my children and I. Not sure why but the can measurements were confusing with the way the cans were here in US supermarkets. As others have posted this makes a lot but we have slated it for 2 meals for 4. If others need can size help this is what we used 12oz pkg egg noodles 1 lb ground turkey 1 can (15.5 oz) kidney beans 1 can (15.5 oz)DICED tomatoes 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce I can (15.25 oz) corn niblets same spices and cheese amounts. If you like it saucier add more as we used less than called for. It was definitely a meal we will make on a weekday again. ChefDLH

Sorry, I didn't find this recipe to be anything special. I followed the recipe exactly, and I don't know what would have made it more appealing to our family. Perhaps some more cayenne pepper or some salsa?

This was definitely more than 4 servings, especially if you serve it over pasta! I used pinto beans instead of kidney, and diced tomatoes instead of whole, and next time I'll most likely use ground turkey instead of beef.

Very good, easy, filling meal. This did make way too much for my family of 3. I used large macaroni, diced tomatoes, no cayenne (didn't have any). Really enjoyed this, thank-you.

Let me start by saying, there is NO WAY this makes only 4 servings!! I followed to a tee, and our family of four at healthy portions and still had enough for a second meal!! HUGE! The only changes I made was to use macaroni, cut the chili powder to 1 TBSP and the cayenne to 1/8 tsp. Super yummy! Kids loved it!! Thank you!

This recipe is a keeper! I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used diced tomatoes instead of whole. I was a bit skeptical that the cayenne pepper might be too much for my family,but they loved it! I found myself sneaking some of the leftovers before bed--couldn't resist! Thanks for submitting this!

This recipe is so good. The only change I made in it was not adding the corn. To replace the corn, I added another can of beans. Turned out great. Thanks M&M for the recipe.

Great recipe, M&Mers! I used penne pasta in this, and followed the recipe to a "T" !! It turned out wonderful! DH loved it and next time I make it, I'll add a bit more cayenne pepper since we like things hot! Thanks for sharing! I can tell you it will be made often!
