    ALH's Note:

    I found this on a package of beef stock and this recipe is basically unchanged from that. I found there to be a bit too much liquid and after cooking the pasta I needed to boil it down slightly to thicken it up some.

      This makes a ton! I wish I would have cut this recipe in half and we will be eating leftovers for days. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the water. We all enjoyed this. I topped mine with cheddar cheese and the rest of the family topped theirs with parm cheese. Made for a quick weeknight meal.

      Top stuff -- very different from regular chili mac or Slumgullion (the chili powder makes it very southwestern-tasting). I tweaked it some by adding a chopped bell pepper in with the onion to tenderize at the same time, 1 teaspoon of seasoned salt, 1 Tablespoon of oregano and I doubled the macaroni. I didn't need to add water. Next time, instead of chili powder, I'll use Taco seasoning which has chili powder and also a thickening agent. I'll also add some drained pimientos, or maybe a chipotle with adobo. This is a recipe that will endure some modification but I would not recommend adding any non-tex-mex ingredients! Makes enough to feed a crowd. Great job, fuerein -- thank you so much for posting it. We enjoyed it a lot!pat.

      This was pretty good. I liked the flavor. I would give it a 3 1/2 stars. I cut the recipe in half and I'm glad I did. We have 4 people in our family and we still had leftovers. Half the recipe could easily feed 6 people. I didn't put the water in there because it was really watery as it was. I also had to cook it longer so the liquid would drain. My 8 year old liked it, but my 5 year old didn't. I will make it again. It was very easy to make.
