My mom used to make this instead of spaghetti because the noodles were easier to pick up with a fork and it added a little spice to it too. I like to also have garlic bread with cheese with it.

Julie's recipe should be a staple on any busy mom's menu. It's simple and easy to throw together. The whole crew loved this dish. The seasoning packet adds all the flavor you'd expect from a chili but you don't have to grab multiple spice jars. It seriously doesn't get easier than this recipe. Serve with a side salad and garlic bread and you have a super quick meal. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
