Directions

In a medium-size pot or Dutch oven, brown ground beef over medium heat. Drain off excess fat. Add chili seasoning to taste, onion, garlic, jalapeños and tomatoes and their juice. Simmer for 30 minutes over medium heat. Add water to keep a good consistency if needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add beans. Cook pasta according to package directions.
