    tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1

    lb ground beef

  • 1

    medium onion (chopped)

  • 1

    dash salt

  • 1

    dash ground black pepper

  • 1/2

    lb cooked medium shells

  • 15

    ounces tomato sauce

  • 1

    (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies

  • 1

    (15 ounce) black beans (drained and rinsed)

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons chili powder

  • 2

    teaspoons cumin

  • 3

    dashes cayenne pepper

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • 2

    cups shredded Mexican cheese blend

  • 1/2

    cups sour cream

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook while breaking up into chunks with a spatula until no longer pink. Season with salt and pepper. While the ground beef is cooking, boil the pasta according to package directions until al dente. Drain and set aside. Add the tomato sauce to the ground beef mixture. Add diced tomatoes and green chilies, beans, chili powder, cumin, cayenne and water. Mix well and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked pasta until well combined. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pour the chili and pasta mixture into the dish. Flatten the mixture out with a spatula and top with cheese. Place into the oven and bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until the edges are bubbling and the cheese has melted. Spoon into serving dishes and top with sour cream and green onions.
