8 Servings


670 Calories Per Serving


  • Two pounds of hamburger meat
  • One onion, diced
  • Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, oregano, and chipotle powder, to taste
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 16 - 24 oz of beef broth
  • 1 cup of uncooked pasta shells
  • 1 jar of Pure Hatch Green Chile


1. Brown Ground Beef

Brown meat and add all seasonings; add onion and chile after the meat has browned a bit.

2. Cook Pasta

While the beef is cooking, put shells to boil; when done, drain and set aside.

3. Add Tomatoes to Beef

After meat simmers with seasonings for about 10 minutes, add diced tomatoes, and stir. Let simmer, occasionally stirring, for 15-20 minutes to let flavors blend; taste, add more cumin, garlic, chipotle, and beef stock to get the flavor desired.

4. Add Pasta

Add in shells and stir. Make sure heat is on low setting. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, occasionally stirring, so shells do not stick to the bottom. Add liquid if needed.

5. Let Cool

Turn off the heat, and let sit covered for 10 minutes, stir, and serve it up. Use this as a base recipe, but make it your own by adding/taking out as you desire.
