  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick Chili Powder or Chipotle Chili Pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • optional: chopped cilantro or parsley


  • Add noodles and broth to a large stock pot. Bring to a boil and cook until noodles are tender - about 9-13 minutes. Reduce to medium-low heat.
  • Stir in chili, bell peppers, garlic powder, chili powder, and salt and pepper. Allow to cook for 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle cheese over the top of the chili-noodle mixture. Cover the pot for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately and garnish with parsley or cilantro as desired. Enjoy!


For a vegetarian meal, use vegetable broth and meatless chili.
