Chili Mac Soup

Apparently I'm on a soup kick because I made another one the other night! Or maybe it's because cooking warm soups is a great way to spend time together and cheer someone up! Anyways, this one was pretty delicious! And technically mine wasn't "Mac", it's Chili Pasta Soup.
Taste:  I couldn't find the Chili Macaroni Hamburger Helper, so I used Beef Pasta Hamburger Helper. I feel like the soup was lacking a little flavor/spice.
Texture: Great variety of textures
Would I make this again?: My sister made it with Chili Macaroni and said it was amazing! So maybe!! 
Chili Mac Soup 
Found: Betty Crocker Recipes
1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
5 cups hot water

1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 cups diced tomatoes (from 28-oz can)
1 can (11 oz) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
2 tablespoons sliced pitted ripe olives (black olives)

1. In 4-quart Dutch oven, cook beef, onion and bell pepper over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.

2. Stir in hot water, sauce mix (from Hamburger Helper box), chili powder, garlic salt and tomatoes. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.

3. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in uncooked pasta (from Hamburger Helper box), corn and olives. Cover; cook 10 minutes longer.
