This has become a recent favorite at our house.
7-8 oz noodles
1 pounds ground beef
(previously fried with onions and green peppers)
4 oz Velveeta processed cheese cut into cubes
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon corn starch
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Cook macaroni in boiling salted water following package directions.
In a large skillet add the ground beef, cheeses, milk, and spices until cheeses are melted. Stir in the hot drained pasta. Yum. It’s even better left over!
Note: You can substitute paprika for the cayenne if you don’t like it so spicy.

Sounds “delish” as Emma would say even though she isnt a big meat eater, I’m gonna give it a try.Thanks Esther.
I don’t know what “Velveeta” is, but this looks like a dish I actually could prepare!

This looks like a great recipe to try for kids. Thanks for sharing! I love cheese. And pasta. A good recipe for me. 😉 Visiting from Tasty Tuesday. Hope you’ll stop by my blog to say hi. 🙂
Sounds tasty and probably much better than the Hamburger Helper version! Might have to try this later this week. Thanks for the recipe!
I often do a similar dish – I usually throw in some drained diced tomatoes with mine. Anything w/ velveeta typically goes over well, lol!

THIS LOOKS SO GOOD!!!! visiting from tasty tuesday as well, soooo yum! question for you–I can never find the velveeta cheese in my supermarket–where do you find yours?
Sounds good and of course fattening, but your family doesn’t have to worry about that.
Okay, seriously, can someone tell me what Velveeta is (I’m a non-chef living on an island known more for the fact that a kids’ movie was named after it, and have never heard of the stuff…)
Robin, Velveeta is a processed cheese spread. It melts really easy and is often used in cheese dips. I am not typically a fan of it as I really prefer real cheese, but I love this recipe. Hope that helps!
Ammie, It’s not in the refrigerated section with the cheeses. It’s usually in the aisle with the non-refrigerated Parmesan cheese. I’ve had trouble finding it before too!
Yum, that sounds delish! I am going to have to try it!

I’d been looking for a recipe like this but all the ones I found were a little to “fancy” for my needs. I’m copying this one down right now! Thanks.
Hmmmm, resembles Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger! Only, without all the salt, I’m sure. Looks good!
Oh maaaaaaaan! This looks SO GOOD! I definitely have to try it sometime!!! 🙂
This looks delicious! I’m definitely going to put it on next week’s menu!
Many years ago I was given a very similar recipe and was told the name of it was “goulosh.” I made it and the kids and I liked it, but my husband was sure nothing with such an unappetizing name could be fit to eat. I should try it again with the new name.
