DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente (if using regular macaroni this will take about 6 to 7 minutes, if using lower-carb versions it'll take about 15 minutes); drain and set aside.
  • While pasta is cooking, in a large sauté pan cook the ground meat, onion, and garlic until meat is browned, about 5 to 7 minutes; drain fat if desired or necessary.
  • Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, mild green chiles, beans, chili powder, ancho, oregano, cumin, pepper, salt, and tabasco (to taste) and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the cooked macaroni and stir well to incorporate.
  • Pour mixture into a lightly pan-sprayed large casserole dish and sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
  • Serve with a bit of sour cream for topping and veggies.
