Skillet Chili Mac

Posted on: July 7, 2011

This is a meal that doesn’t require too much prep (you’re only chopping an onion and some garlic) and cooks all in one skillet, which makes it perfect for an easy weekday meal.

Ingredients
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound ground turkey (or lean ground beef)
1 onion, diced
3/4 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
15 oz can tomato sauce
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles
2 cups water
2 cups elbow noodles
1 cup frozen corn
2 cups shredded cheese (Mexican or cheddar blend)

Directions
Heat the oil in a 12 inch skillet. Add the turkey (or beef), onions, chili powder, cumin, and salt and cook until the meat is browned. Stir in garlic and brown sugar and cook until fragrant (less than a minute).

Stir in tomato sauce, tomatoes, water, and pasta and cover with a lid. Stir often to maintain a steady simmer and cook until the pasta is tender, about 12-15 minutes.

Remove from heat. Stir in one cup of cheese and the corn. Top with the remaining cheese and cover for a 2-3 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
