Very nice, comforting, homey-type dish. A different twist on Goulash. I subbed in black beans for the corn. We don't eat corn, but I wanted to keep with the Tex-Mex theme.

This was so quick and easy to throw together and the results are delicious!! I'll have to say, I was a little weary of the short cooking time on LOW....It came out perfect!! Thanks Lori for such a warm and comforting crockpot recipe!!

Very good, fast and easy. The only thing I omitted was the corn. Also, did this on the stove-top instead of the crock-pot. I did opt to use the velveeta cheese which added a nice creaminess to this dish. :-) Made for KK's Recipe-Tag.

Very good and easy dish. I didn't have the time to make it in the crock pot so I did it on the stove top. I cooked the macaroni as the ground beef was browning. Once the beef/onion mixture was done, I threw everything else in (except for the cheese). I also added some Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy to give it a little more kick. I let it all simmer for about 10 minutes and then added the Velveeta cheese. Mmmmmm...a delicious dish that I will be making often. Made for May, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.

Simple, and kid-friendly. I used wheat macaroni noodles with good results. Knowing that my family prefers saucy dishes, I added a small can of tomato sauce. I did add the Velveeta, so it was nice and cheesey. Thanx for posting. This is a keeper!

I needed a recipe my husband could put right on the table after coming home late from work. Almost everything required you cook additional rice, noodles or potatoes. This was perfect because it was an all inclusive meal. I did not drain the tomatoes, but used 1 c frozen corn rather than canned. I also used the whole package of chili seasoning mix. I did not have the issues with the mushy macaroni, but I also used Barilla Plus pasta, which takes a little longer to cook normally. I would recommend it or whole wheat pasta rather than traditional white pasta as they are a little hardier and the texture may hold up better. I was surprised when I got home, my husband said dinner was good. When I sat down to eat mine I couldn't believe how good it really was. I didn't think such a simple recipe could have so much flavor. It will be added to our recipe rotation for sure. It was served with a green salad and fruit. A perfect dinner. Weight Watchers: 8 pts using lean ground beef, whole wheat pasta, and 2% Velveeta

Just made this a few nights ago and everyone loved it. Fed five people and had lots leftover. I would suggest stirring half way through. The pasta on top wasn't cooked enough and the pasta on bottom was mushy. We all thought it was yummy and my daughter said to add this one to the family cookbook. Thanks for a great recipe.

This was good and easy to make. I wasn't sure if I was suppose to drain the tomatoes and corn so I did but then I thought it seemed to be missing juice. I ended up adding a can of tomato sauce. My macaroni's got a little mushy too but maybe my crockpot cooks faster- next time I just wouldn't cook as long. I didn't have velveeta so I didn't add it. I did follow the directions exactly as written other then adding the tom sauce. Was very good.
