Cheeseburger Chili Macaroni

Cheeseburger Chili Macaroni

• 2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin ( I just used ground beef)
• 1 large onion, finely chopped
• 2 tablespoons chili powder
• Salt and ground black pepper
• 1/2 cup ketchup
• 1/4 cup yellow mustard
• 1 to 2 cups beef stock (depending on how liquid-y you want it)
• 1 16 oz. Pkg. GF noodles
• 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp yellow cheddar (the sharper the better!)

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat for the pasta.
Heat 2TB of Olive oil in pan and brown the beef. (I did not use any oil with the ground beef)

Add the onion and chili powder to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the onion is tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the ketchup, mustard and beef stock to the pot, bring up to a bubble and simmer until slightly thickened, 4-5 minutes.
While the chili is working, salt the boiling water and drop the pasta in. Cook to al dente according to package directions then drain thoroughly and return it to the pot.

Add the chili to the pot with the pasta and give everything a good toss. Transfer to a casserole dish and top with the shredded cheese. Place the casserole under the broiler to melt and brown the cheese. Serve with a simple salad alongside.
