Homemade hamburger helper

Decided we needed to use some of the ground beef that we had, and everyone asked for hamburger helper. Of course we don't have any, so I looked for some ideas. I found a recipe that worked great with a little modification.


1 pound ground beef
1 1/4 cup hot water
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
1 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Brown the meat, and drain. Add spices water (original recipe was only 1 cup water, but was a bit dry), milk, and noodles. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cover. Cook about 10 minutes, and stir in cheese. Cook additional 2 minutes or until pasta is tender, and cheese is melted. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to thicken. You can add more cheese when serving.
