1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 1/3
cups hot water
1
box Hamburger Helper™ Cheddar cheese melt
1
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa (any variety)
1 2/3
cups milk
1/4
to 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2
cans (15 oz each) spicy chili beans in sauce, undrained
3/4
cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1
large tomato, chopped (about 1 cup)

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 2 Stir in hot water, sauce mix and uncooked pasta (from Hamburger Helper box), salsa, milk, chili powder and beans. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently.
  • 3 Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender.

Tips  

Expert Tips

Not a “hot” fan? Use mild salsa, and replace the spicy chili beans with kidney beans.

To really spice things up, use a hot variety of salsa or stir in canned Old El Paso® chopped green chiles with the salsa.
