Zippy Beef Casserole

Recipe by axxo3846

This a great quick easy meal. Kids love it because of the addition of the potato chips on top. Add a green salad and biscuits....Yummy

Hubby and I liked this dish! I too weighed the macaroni, but found that 4 ounces was (slightly) a bit more than one cup. I only added 1-1/2 Tbsp. dried minced onion, 1/2 tsp. of salt, and added several large dashes of pepper. I didn't have any green pepper to add to this dish, and it still tasted good. I baked this casserole for 40 minutes, but next time I'm going to reduce the baking time to 30 minutes (not counting the extra 5 minutes to bake the crushed chips). I found this casserole made at least 5 servings, rather than 8. Since we liked this dish, I will definitely make this casserole again. Thanx for the recipe Maggie. It was good!!
