    1      pound         ground beef
      1/2  cup           chopped onion
      1/2  cup           chopped green bell pepper
      1/2  cup           chopped red bell pepper
    2      cloves        garlic -- minced
    2      cups          elbow macaroni -- cooked
      1/2  cup           water
    1      tablespoon    chili powder
    1      teaspoon      ground cumin
    1      teaspoon      fresh cilantro
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
   14 1/2  ounces        canned no-added-salt whole tomatoes
                         undrained and chopped
   15      ounces        canned kidney beans -- rinsed and drained
    8 3/4  ounces        canned no-added-salt whole kernel corn -- drained
    8      ounces        canned no-added-salt tomato sauce
    6      ounces        canned no-added-salt tomato paste
    1      cup           cheddar cheese, lowfat -- shredded
 
 This is a classic, family-pleasing recipe that uses kidney beans to extend
 the ground beef and lower the fat content
 
 Cook ground beef, onion, bell peppers, and garlic in a large Dutch oven
 over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble beef.  Drain well;
 wipe drippings from pan with paper towels.  Return beef mixture to pan.
 Add all remaining ingredients except cheese, and stir well.  Bring to a
 boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
 Spoon onto individual serving plates; top with cheese.
