Skillet Chili Mac with Corn and Green Chilies

I found this recipe a while back over at My Kitchen Cafe. My kids love anything with pasta and cheese so I thought we give it a try. It was a nice little change!! The kids loved it!!! It was quick and easy to prepare which is an added bonus.

Skillet Chili Mac adapted from My Kitchen Cafe
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. chili powder
1/2 T. corriander
1/2 T. cumin
1 tsp salt
1 T. brown sugar
2-8 oz. cans tomato sauce
2 cups water
2 cups(8 oz) elbow macaroni
1 cup frozen corn
1 (4 oz)can diced green chilies
2 T. fresh Cilantro
2 cup shredded cheese. I used sharp cheddar but use any combination you like

Brown the beef in a 12 inch skillet. When beef is almost done drain the grease. Add the onion, garlic, and spices. Cook until beef no longer pink and onion is tender. Stir in the brown sugar, tomato sauce, water, and macaroni. Cover and cook, stirring often and kepping the heat at a steady simmer, until the macaroni is tender, about 12-15 minutes. Stir in 1 cup of cheese, frozen corn, green chilies, and cilantro. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cheese on top and cover and let sit until chees is melted, about 2 minutes. Serve and enjoy!!!
