Cheesy Southwestern Skillet...

Cheesy Southwestern Skillet

1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1 pound of very lean ground beef
1 onion, minced
1 green bell pepper, minced
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 T chili powder
1 t ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes (do NOT drain them)
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (4 oz) can chopped mild green chiles
1 T garlic powder
1/2 cup water
1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Cook macaroni according to package directions and then drain.

In a saute pan on medium-high heat, heat olive oil and then cook ground beef until no longer pink. Stir in onion and bell pepper. Pour in chicken broth and scrape up any bits of beef in the bottom of the pan. Stir in chili powder, cumin and salt. Cook until the onions are softened. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chiles, garlic powder and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are well blended. Add the macaroni and stir to combine. Sprinkle cheese all over top and let it melt before serving.

4- 6 servings.

Sounds good! Now corn on the cob and a fresh from the garden mater would go good with that!☺

Hey there! Thanks for coming by my site!! Yeah, we are Southern Baptist and many people in our church are reformed (including us), but our church as a whole is not. That makes it difficult at times, as I'm sure you well know! We actually lost a bunch of folks last year as a result of our convictions. Fortunately, things have calmed down quite a bit.

Thanks for visiting my site!! Your recipe looks wonderful!
