Spanish Noodles & Ground Beef Recipe

Bacon adds flavor to this comforting stovetop supper my mom frequently made when we were growing up. Now I prepare it for my family. It disappears quickly and is budget-pleasing, too, at just 87¢ for each serving. —Kelli Jones Perris, California

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped

"Nothing special, and not sure what makes it "Spanish." Seemed just like goulash that I grew up with. Thought bacon seemed out of place in the recipe, but went ahead and put it in. Still seemed out of place."

"This has been a favorite at our house since the recipe first appeared in 2001. We have six children, so when they were growing up, quick, easy, delicious recipes were necessary. All of them liked this dish. The only change I had to make was deleting the green pepper because my husband can't eat them. I also doubled the amount of bacon because all of us are bacon lovers. I made homemade salsa this summer, so I might try using some of that in place of the full amount of tomatoes."

"This is certainly easy and ok, but whatever you do don't go over at all on the chili sauce or it becomes too sweet. I didn't see what the bacon added to it, but I think it could use some cheese.

"Super simple - great flavor. I didn't have chili sauce so I mixed horseradish with catsup... YUM! It's what makes this recipe different. Also tossed in about a cup of frozen corn kernels and a few garden peas for a color pop."

"I make this same recipe only with elbow macaroni.  Never put in chlli sauce but will try it the next time.  I always use DelMonte Diced tomatoes with jalopenos.  It is really delicious.  Also my recipe calls for adding 1-2 cups shredded cheese at the end of the cooking tme.
