Sunny’s Tex-Mex Chili Mac Skillet
Level: Easy
Total: 40 min
Active: 15 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 pound ground beef (80 percent meat/20 percent fat)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 cups marinara sauce (pick one with personality!)
One 8.5-ounce bag microwaveable pasta, such as rotini, elbows or penne
2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 jalapenos, thinly sliced into rounds
Greek yogurt or sour cream and sliced scallions, for garnish


Preheat the oven or a grill to 375 degrees F.

Add the olive oil, chili powder and cumin to a large cast-iron pan over medium heat. Toast and stir until the spices are fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the beef, salt and a few grinds of black pepper and cook, breaking the beef into bits while browning, until fully cooked, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the marinara sauce and stir to coat. Add the pasta straight from the bag and stir.

Level the contents of the pan and top with the cheese, then arrange the jalapeno slices around the pan on top. Bake or grill with the lid closed until the cheese melts and is golden on the edges, 10 to 15 minutes. Top with the Greek yogurt and scallions. Serve warm.
