This skillet is sure to be a dude-food favorite!
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
cup hot water
box Hamburger Helper™ double cheeseburger macaroni
cup shredded Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
can (2.8 oz) French-fried onions
Red pepper sauce or chopped jalapeño chiles, if desired
In 10-inch skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until brown; drain.
Stir in milk, hot water, beer, uncooked pasta and sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Remove from heat; uncover.
Top with 1/2 cup of the cheese, the bacon and onions. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese on top. Cover; let stand 5 minutes (sauce will thicken as it stands). Sprinkle with pepper sauce.
Don't want to make this with beer? Non-alcoholic beer can easily be substituted.
