Default Cheesy Chili Mac

Folks, this is ALMOST as easy as Hamburger Helper and tastes 100 times better.

Cheesy Chili Mac
Serves 4

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 Medium onion, minced
1 Tablespoon Chile Powder
teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes [Optional]
1 Tablespoon Ground Cumin
3 Medium Garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 [15 ounce] can tomato sauce
2 Cups water
1 Pound 90% lean ground beef
8 ounces elbow macaroni
1 8 ounce package shredded Mexican Cheese blend [or 1 cup each shredded Jack and Cheddar Cheese
Ground black pepper

1. Heat the oil in a 12 skillet [nonstick preferred] over medium heat until oil shimmers. Add the onion, chili powder, red pepper flakes [if used], cumin and teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in Garlic and brown sugar and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the beef and cook, breaking apart the meat, until browned and no longer pink, 3-5 minutes.

2. Stir in the water and tomato sauce, then add the pasta. Cover, increase heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring often and adjusting the heat to maintain a vigorous simmer, until the pasta is tender, 9 to 12 minutes.

3. Off the heat, stir in of the cheese blend and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top, cover and let stand off of the heat until the cheese melts, approximately 2-4 minutes.
