Cheesy Chili Mac

I love Chili and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This Chili Mac recipe was delicious and really easy to prepare. It's a good stick to your ribs type of meal. Perfect cold weather comfort food!

Cheesy Chili Mac
Heavily Adapted from All Recipes.Com
Serves 6
Cal 353, Fat 5.1g, Carbs 34g, Fiber 4g, 31g

1 lb lean ground beef (I used Ground Turkey)
1 small onion diced
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup pinto beans
1 cup water
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (I used reduced fat Velveeta)
1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni

In large saucepan, over medium heat, cook ground beef, onion and green peppers until meat is browned. Stir in tomato sauce, water, worcestershire sauce, and chili powder.  Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add elbow macaroni and stir well. Recover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until macaroni is tender. Serve topped with Cheddar cheese and chopped green onions, if desired. Enjoy!
