Mexican Starburst Casserole
1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup chopped green onion
2 tsp chili powder
1 cup water
1 can tomato soup
1 small can chopped green chilies
6 oz uncooked elbow macaroni
5 slices american cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook beef and onion until no longer pink. Drain. Stir in chilies, chili powder, water, and tomato soup; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
Cook macaroni in boiling water for just 4 minutes and drain.
In a 2-quart casserole dish pour 1/2 of the prepared meat mixture and top with the hot macaroni. Slice cheese into triangles and place 1/2 of the cheese on the macaroni. Pour remaining meat mixture on the cheese. Cover and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes. Place remaining cheese on the casserole in a star or sun shape and allow to melt.
