- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 yellow onion , diced
- 4 cloves garlic , minced
- 1 small jalapeno , diced
- 1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
- 1 19 oz can black beans , drained and rinsed
- 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp oregano
- 4 cups chicken broth
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 1 340 g package macaroni
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add in ground beef, onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook until the ground beef is fully browned, crumbling beef as it cooks, about 5 minutes.
Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Stir in macaroni. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked al dente (about 10 minutes though can vary depending on the brand of pasta you use). Most of the liquid should be absorbed at this point.
Stir in half of the shredded cheese, then top with the remaining cheese and cover pot until melted. Remove from heat and serve.
