Two pounds ground beef. I use the 85/15 from Costco
Two cups no salt hot chicken stock- Costco Kirkland brand
Three cups nonfat milk
Two cups half & half
One pound any type of tubular pasta- macaroni etc...

Two tablespoons Paprika
Two tablespoons dry mustard
Two tablespoons onion powder
Two tablespoons sugar
Two tablespoons New Mexico chili powder
Two tablespoons cornstarch
Two teaspoons table salt or one table spoon kosher
One tablespoon fresh ground pepper.

Three cups shredded cheddar cheese


Brown meat.

Add pasta, all liquids and all dry ingredients and bring to boil.

Make sure to mix in all dry ingredients well.

Turn down to simmer and cook for 15 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir three or four times while cooking. Setting 1.5 on electric or really low on gas.

During last four minutes stir in cheese.

Turn off burner and let stand five to ten minutes before serving. Don't move off burner that you used to cook it

I used a 5qt non stick skillet with high sides. This is the double batch that serves 10 people healthy servings. My family of five has it two nights in a row. It could easily be cut in half. I got this off the Internet in January and have been tweaking it since.

Serve with a salad or your favorite veggies

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I just have one question - did you precook the pasta?

I bet the pasta went in uncooked.

Looks great, BullDog! Ever grind your own hamburger or make your own pasta? That would take it up a couple "notches", imo.

your sounds SOOOOO much better than that crap'n help bs my wife makes. HHelper is similar to an over cooked hot pocket, "boiling lava hot" and tastes of blah. I'd rather eat my underwear after a hard night of tequila.

^^^^^ Too funny Cave Man.

Yes the pasta went in dry uncooked. That's the reason for so much liquid.

As for grinding my own meat(lol). I do not for dishes such as this. I do however grind my own deer/elk meat and mix it with pork to make sausages after a successful hunting season. By the way Costco was selling a great all stainless steel prep table that would hold about half a deer or quarter of elk for processing.. OK wandering

Yeah just use Costco ground beef. Its always fresh and ground right on site. Plus less costly when feeding the horde I have.

Making pasta? I have for special occasions like twice a year when we make Crab Raviolis. Where I live Cave Man I can get fresh by driving five minutes from my house.

We use the dry semolina flour pasta from......... COSTCO! for this and most regular everyday dishes. It's made in Italy and tastes almost as good as fresh. Plus it actually costs less than store brand pasta per ounce on sale. Have to buy 8lbs of it to see the cost saving.

I made this tonight - I cut the recipe in half though and I didn't have chili pepper - other than that I followed exactly. It was a hit! Everyone loved it! Thanks bulldogdad!

Uodate: Made it last night. Though it was eaten and there were no complaints, I sadly don't think it will be a regular dish.
