The Original Recipe:
I did put this together from some other recipes I had. I don't have the original, so this is it; my very own original. My kids really like this. I have pickey boy who doesn't like cheese, so we leave that off of his.
Bacon Chili Mac
1 ½ lb. Lean ground beef
3 1/2 Tbls. reduced sodium onion soup mix
1 tsp. Chili powder
½ tsp Cumin
1 10 ¾ oz. Can tomato soup
5 slices bacon (cooked, drained and crumbled)
1/2 cup Colby and Monterey Jack cheese (more or less to your liking)
2 cups Cooked whole wheat macaroni noodles
Brown ground beef in large pot with seasonings, tomato soup and bacon. Stir, add cooked noodles and cheese. Heat till cheese is melted. Serve.
*I have also made this with ground turkey and turkey bacon. It still tastes just as good.
