Eldorado Chili

microwave recipe


  • 500 g ground beef lean if possible
  • 1/2 c minced/chopped onion
  • 1 each yellow and red paprika or if they are not that cheap, just 1 green pepper is good enough, big one so it will be about 1/2 c cubed/diced
  • 1-2 garlic minced
  • 1 can tomato broken up, liquid (the 28 oz can), or crushed tomatoes is fine as well
  • 1 can black beans the 15 oz can or red kidney, whichever is fine
  • 1/2 c broken spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp chili powder omit if it's for kids or you don't like it a little spicy
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • a pinch or two salt as needed OR bouillon powder, would make it even much better


  • In a 3 quart microwave proof bowl/casserole, place beef, break with fork, then add in onion, paprika, and garlic. Cover and microwave on high for 9 minutes, stirring once.
  • Break up beef again with fork, drain.
  • Add remaining ingredients, mix lightly, put cover/lid back and microwave for 30-35 mins (until spaghetti is cooked) - every 10 minutes, take out casserole from microwave and stir mixture.
  • Let stand 10 mins before serving. Enjoy :)
