Instructions
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef with bay leaf and cook for 5-6 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spatula.
  2. Add the onion to the pot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, cumin, tomatoes, beef broth, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, kidney beans, and macaroni to the pot. Stir to combine.
