  1. Place Beefaroni, drained tomatoes, beans, corn and cumin in large saucepan; stir to combine.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and broken chips just before serving.

Cook's Tip

Let the kids get involved by breaking the tortilla chips for the dish or adding the ingredients to the saucepan. To help give your family even more of the good stuff they need, you can use Whole Grain Beefaroni instead of Regular Beefaroni.

I made this for my kids and they loved it and all 3 asked for seconds! Normally there is always one person who doesnt like something but they all loved it. I use tomato sauce instead of diced tomatoes and put some cheese in the pot with the mixture and still put the chips and cheese prior to serving. They really liked it
