This was a super easy supper and all the guys gobbled it right up. Nothing new, honestly it would have to tasted like dirt for them not to eat it. No I take that back, if it were on a dare, they'd eat dirt. If you have a houseful of guys like I do, you know what I mean.
I served this dish with a big salad loaded with goodies like mixed baby greens, spinach, cucumbers, Roma tomatoes, beets, sliced pickled banana peppers, olives and a sprinkle of Mexican blend cheese. Yep, I like my salad loaded, none of that crunchy water for me. That would be iceberg lettuce.
Easy Beef Tomac
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion or 2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp parsley
1 TBSP chili powder
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 cup dry elbow noodles
2 cups water
1/2 cup Mexican blend shred cheese
1/2 cup Mexican blend shred cheese for the top
In a large pot, cook the meat with 1/2 cup of the water and spices. After it is done add the tomatoes, noodles and remaining water. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Now stir in 1/2 cup cheese and allow to melt. Now top with remaining cheese and cover. Turn off heat and allow cheese to melt completely.
