Mexican Goulash

1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup onion
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
3 cups tomato juice
1 1/2 cups uncooked macaroni
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder

Add macaroni to boiling water and cook for 7 minutes. Cook the beef, onion, and pepper in cast-iron skillet until meat is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain off fat. Add tomato juice, macaroni, and spices. Simmer until liquid is almost absorbed. Makes 4-6 servings.

Notes: I found this recipe online somewhere three or four years ago, but had never tried it until now. Brittany and I both thought it was a bit lacking in flavor. If I make this again, I might try doubling the spices or adding something else. The recipe I found also had the following line: "Cook in crockpot 2 hours or until completely heated." From the way it was written I couldn't tell, but I think it was meant to be an alternative way to cook it.
