Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

It actually looks a lot like a dish I make that I've named TexMex hamburger helper. It started out with me making tacos for my kids one night to find out the box of shells in the pantry they had already eaten so I mixed it with elbow macaroni. It has since changed and I've nailed it down. It is also often better the next day as left overs. Recipe goes as follows:

1 large onion diced
1 lbs ground beef
1 bell pepper (optional)
1 can of Rotel Tomatoes
1 package of Old El Paso Taco seasoning ( I make my own )
1/2 cup of low sodium Beef broth
3 table spoons of your favorite salsa ( I prefer the hot )
1 lb of elbow macaroni
1 tbl of garlic finely chopped
1 to 3 jalapeños peppers (optional if you like it with a bit more kick)
cayenne, black, red pepper and salt to taste
cummin and celentro (optional)

In a large skillet or sauté pan put about a table spoon of oil (I use olive oil) and add onions, jalapeños and bell pepper (if used) and sauté this until it starts turning translucent on medium heat.

Add the ground beef to the pan and season with peppers and salt to taste. Once beef is starting to brown add the Rotel tomatoes drained and stir it around a bit.

Now add the beef broth followed by the Taco seasoning and salsa and bring to a low boil for about 2 min. Now turn it down to a low simmer with a lid on it.

At this point my pasta pot is at a roll boil so I add salt to the water then the macaroni. Once pasta is done drain it an mix it in the pan of meat etc. Be sure to mix it well. Let it sit a couple of minutes on low heat and serve. I also often add cheese such as Jack or Cheddar over it as a topping.

LOL! I guess there are versions of this dish, by many names, across the country!

Good comfort food, no matter where you are!

Thanks for playing, everyone!

I agree as almost anything goes with macaroni/pasta really. Rice is another thing that always seems to work mixed.

This is the way my father likes American Chop Suey, and the way my mother made it when I was growing up.

No tomato anything!

Dad is coming to visit next week so I cooked up a batch to have one night when he's here and some for him to take home.

That looks good. My mom made the goulash with mac and tomato sauce. At school it was called chili mac. I like it all and add hot sauce at the table.
