Chili Noodle Casserole

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 (15 oz.) can chili
1 (14.5 oz.) can peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
1/4 cup taco sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large skillet over medium high heat, sauté the beef and onion for 5 to 10 minutes, or until meat is browned and onion is tender; drain fat. Add the celery, chili, tomatoes, taco sauce and corn. Heat thoroughly, reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.

Meanwhile, prepare the noodles according to package directions. When cooked, place them in a 9×13 inch baking dish. Pour the meat mixture over the noodles, stirring well. Top with the cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted and bubbly.
