One Pot Chili Mac

Hubby asked me to create a one pot meal tab in my Pinterest account so that we can file quick and easy dinners that we want to try.  Generally he is out on the road during the day working he has an opportunity to stop at the grocery store and pick up what we need.  This one was very hearty on a cold night like we have been having lately.  When the temperature is in the single digits or lower, you want something to warm you up and this hits the spot. 

One Pot Chili Mac

Ingredients

1 pound Ground Beef
2 Tbl Olive Oil
1 Red Onion chopped
1 Poblano Chili seeded and chopped
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
2 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Cumin
1 14 ounce can Fire-roasted Diced Tomatoes
1 can Kidney or Red Beans
4 cups Beef Broth
10 ounces Macaroni Noodles
2 cups Cheddar or Monterey Jack Cheese , shredded
2 Tbl Parsley , chopped

Directions

Heat a large pot to medium/high. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up into small pieces.
Add the olive oil, onion, chili, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and cumin to the beef and saute for 4-5 minutes, or until onion and chili have softened.
Add the beans, tomatoes, beef broth, and macaroni noodles to the pot. Stir to combine and then cover the pot with a lid. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring contents every minute or two, until the noodles are al dente.
Remove from heat and sprinkle the top of the chili mac with the shredded cheese and parsley. Cover until service to allow the cheese to melt.
