This recipe is straight from her and we love it around here!
(I modified my quantities because I only had 1/2 lb of ground beef left, but I'm listing the full quantities below)
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 1 tsp chili powder
- Ketchup - enough to cover the meat
- Macaroni noodles (I think the actual name is elbow pasta, but who really calls it that?!)
First things first, brown the meat and drain off the fat
Then add in the ketchup and chili powder
On low heat mix these two ingredients in well
In another pot, boil the macaroni noodles - I used less than half a bag and it was too much for the amount of meat I had...so you just kind of have to "eye" it. Once they are ready, drain off the water and add them to your skillet that already has the meat/ketchup/chili powder.
Here's what it looks like all mixed together. The great part is, if you want some more spice you can add it in at the end, or if it's too dry you can add more ketchup here too.
My dinner! I warmed up some peas to go on the side. I used to HATE peas as a kid, but they are soo good and sweet!
Enjoy a simple and quick meal with this one!
