Oodles of Noodles Chili Bake
- "1 (12 ounce) package wide egg noodles
- uncooked "1 lb lean GROUND BEEF "1 (14.5 ounce) can petite diced tomatoes "1 (15 ounce) can corn
- drained "1 (15 ounce) can chili without beans
- "1 cup (or more) shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9 inch casserole or two 8 inch baking pans (you could eat one today and freeze the other!). Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; draining off any fat if necessary. Combine cooked and drained noodles, browned beef, tomatoes and their juices, drained corn, chili and 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese and stir to mix. Top with remaining cheese and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes until heated through. Serves 8. Goes great with a small side salad or even some fresh fruit. I picked this one because my hubby loves chili but I don't really like kidney beans so I'm always looking for a compromise. You could even add some chili powder, onions, or fresh green/red peppers for added taste.
