Super Quick Chili Mac

I try as often as possible to make homemade, but sometimes you need quick and easy. This recipe combines canned chili beans and some fresh veggies to make a fast yummy dinner.

2 cans chili beans
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon chili seasoning
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups uncooked macaroni noodles
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Make It:
In a medium size saucepan boil water for noodles. Heat a large saucepan over medium high heat, add ground beef to pan, using a spoon to break up the meat. Add noodles into boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. Once the meat is almost completely browned, add onions and bell peppers to pan. Stir and cook until peppers and onions are soft. Drain off grease. Stir in chili beans. Drain noodles, and add to saucepan, stir to combine. Add salt and chili seasoning to mixture, stir. Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes. Mix in a 1/2 cup of the cheese, stir until melted. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup of cheese over the top and cover for about 2 minutes until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
