I am back! We are all moved in to the new place and I can't wait to start cooking again. I have a ton of recipes in back log for the blog, so I am back at it and you will notice everything is in my old kitchen. My new kitchen does not have a gas stove and I am so very sad about that. If anyone has any tips about cooking with lights instead of fire, please let me know. It will take some adjustment for sure.
But for now, lets get into a comfort food recipe that will be a BIG hit with everyone. Well, except my husband who doesn't eat soup.
I honestly have no idea what magazine I clipped this out of. I did not cut this recipe in half because I knew I would love it and enjoy the leftovers.
Lets gather some ingredients. You will need an onion, ground beef (I used fake meat), chili powder, cumin, milk, broth, a can of cheese soup, elbow macaronis and whatever you would like to garnish it with.
measure out your noodles, mine are in Pyrex of course. Moving all the Pyrex was quite a chore, but everything made it in one piece.
Grate your cheese. I did NOT use all of this but the husband uses grated cheese often so I went to town.
Measure out the spices.
Chop up your onion.
And measure out your milk.
Once you are all prepped we can start to cook. Saute the onions over medium high heat for about 4 minutes.
Add in the meat and cook that for an additional 4 minutes.
Add in the spices and give it a stir. Let this cook for about 2 minutes, you will smell the spices starting to get really fragrant.
Add in your milk, broth and the canned soup and give it a stir. Bring it to a boil and reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for about 3 minutes.
Stir in the pasta and you are almost done!
Cover it up and let it cook for five minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Cover it back up and let it sit for five more minutes or until the pasta is done to your liking.
Take off the lid and look at all that cheesy goodness.
I served mine up with some diced tomato and a couple of tortilla chips. This soup was so good and so simple.
I am so glad to be back and again ask for any tips on cooking with an electric cooktop stove.
