  • 8 ounces spaghetti noodles (cooked according to package directions)
  • ½ cup milk

  2.  In a large skillet brown ground beef, onion, green bell pepper, and garlic. Drain. Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce and cook for 2 more minutes.
