English PDF: 
Serving Size: 
1 cup
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 green pepper, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups macaroni, uncooked
  • 1-2 teaspoons chili powder
  1. Brown the ground meat in a large skillet. Transfer mixture to a colander set over a bowl and rinse with warm water to remove grease.* Return to skillet.
  2. Add the chopped green peppers and onions. Cook over medium heat until tender.
  3. Add the water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, macaroni, and chili powder.
  4. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir often to keep the macaroni from sticking.
  5. Serve while hot.
  • *Do not pour grease down the drain. Let grease harden, then put it in the trash.
  • Add some frozen corn or canned black or kidney beans at Step 3, if desired.
