Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean hamburger
  • 1/2 onion , chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 4.5 ounce can chopped green chiles
  • 10 ounce can red enchilada sauce

    Instructions

    • Cook the hamburger in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Stir in the onions, green chiles and taco seasoning and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in enchilada sauce and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Then stir in the noodles and bring the heat to low. Stir and then cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the noodles are cooked. Stir halfway through to prevent the noodles from sticking.
