One Pot Beef Mac & Cheese Skillet Instructions:


Prep Ground Beef:

Season the ground beef with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the seasoned ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks, about 5-7 minutes.


Drain Excess Fat:

Once the beef is browned, drain excess fat if needed.


Cook Aromatics:

Add diced onion and diced bell pepper to the skillet with the beef. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 3-4 minutes.


Add Garlic:

Add minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.


Seasonings:

Sprinkle paprika, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper over the beef and vegetables. Stir well to coat everything evenly.


Add Broth and Tomatoes:

Pour in the beef broth and diced tomatoes with their juices. Bring the mixture to a simmer.


Add Pasta:

Stir in the uncooked elbow macaroni or pasta of your choice. Make sure the pasta is submerged in the liquid.


Simmer:

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the skillet. Let the mixture simmer for about 30 minutes (if using 3 cups of broth for fully cooked pasta) or 15 minutes (if using 2 cups of broth for al dente pasta), stirring occasionally, or until most of the liquid is absorbed and the pasta reaches your desired doneness.


Cheesy Finish:

Once the pasta is cooked to your desired doneness, remove the skillet from heat. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until melted and well combined.


Serve:

Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired. Serve hot
