Recipe of the Week:

Homeschool Mom’s Cheesy Chili Mac Soup

1 T. butter or oil
1 lg. onion, chopped

Saute the above for a few minutes. To it, add:

1 lb. ground beef or other ground meat
1 T. chili powder
1 t. cumin

Cook until browned. Then add:

2 1/2 C. milk (use fresh or canned reconstituted, I find soups are a good way to rotate storage milks)
2 C beef broth (I like to store the little Knorr Homestyle tubs that you reconstitute, no MSG in them)
1 8oz. pkg cream cheese

Stir together, bring to a boil and add:

1 1/2 C. pasta of the smaller variety, such as macaroni or little shells

Cook until pasta is done, then add:

2 C. shredded cheddar
1 jar of salsa

Stir together until cheese is melted, and serve. My husband and kids like to eat this soup with tortilla chips.
