Let Hamburger Helper® do the work tonight with this wonderfully hearty chili-mac recipe for two.  I don't know what I love more about this dish -- how easy it was to make, or how great it tasted.  

Cheeseburger Chili-Mac Soup 
Total Time: 30 minutes
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes

What you'll need
1/4 - 1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/4 medium onion, chopped 
1/2 bell pepper, diced (any color)
2 cups hot water
1/2 box Hamburger Helper® chili macaroni
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 cup diced tomatoes (from 11 ounce can, drained)
1 can (7 ounces) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained

1. In a Dutch oven or medium pot, cook beef, onion and bell pepper over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally, until beef is cooked through; drain.
2. Stir in hot water, half of the sauce mix from Hamburger Helper box, chili powder, garlic salt and tomatoes.  Continue to heat until broth comes to a boil, while stirring occasionally.
3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
4. Stir in half of the uncooked pasta from Hamburger Helper box and the undrained can of corn. 
5. Cover and cook for 10 minutes longer.
6. Serve and enjoy!

I made this for dinner tonight & it was perfect! It reminds me more of a goulash. Not ashamed to say I had seconds & thirds... Even boyfriend finished his bowl & he "doesn't like soup".
Definitely will be back to this blog for more!
