This has come to be my favorite winter comfort food. Ground beef, black olives, tomatoes, chili beans, noodles, and corn make for a great stew like meal. Serve with sour cream and tortilla chips! YUM!

I got on here one day and just wanted a different recipe to use up some noodles and hamburger. What I ended up was a family favorite. I changed the recipe just a little to fit my ingredients I had by using a quart jar of tomato juice (I can my own) 12 ounce bag of noodles instead of 16 oz. and home frozen corn (2c) instead of a can of corn. And so far we've made this three times in a month and everyone loves it. thanks again! Read More

This was just okay for me. I kept referring back to the recipe to see if I had left something out - it was a bit too dry for our tastes. I'm really a fan of 1-pot meals so I wanted to love it but it was missing something. Not sure what. Maybe next time more spices and a can of tomato sauce. Sorry.:-( Read More

My husband and I loved this recipe! It was filling but not too heavy. Since there are just 2 of us we had leftovers that were just as tasty as the night that it was prepared. Very easy to prepare just make sure you have a large pan to fit all the ingredients. I will definetly be fixing this again. Read More

Hello! I am the submitter of this recipe. Make sure if you brown your hamburger in a skillet that you use a larger stock-pot type of pan to do the rest. If you try and do all of this in a skillet you will run out of room. It makes a lot! Read More

My dinner guests loved this recipe! Filling but not heavy. We put sour cream and Tostitos on the side. I cut back the noodles to 2/3 of a pkg. and added a little extra water and chili powder. I plan on making this again! Thanks! Read More

I too felt like there was something missing in this recipe. It was good but not great. I wondered if using chorizo sausage might spice it up a bit. Read More

This is a great way to add lots of different veggies to your day in a delicious way. I only changed a couple things- I used frozen corn because canned corn is nasty! I only added 8 oz. of egg noodles which was actually a perfect amount. Many previous reviewers said the recipe made too much food so this is a way to make it smaller while getting more of everything else on your plate. Really I wouldn't have wanted more noodles anyway. Additionally I added 2 cups of water for the noddles to soak up- they really needed it. This was a good meal. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
