Chili Mac & Cheese

Chili Mac & Cheese

Happy Saturday! I’ve said it multiple times this season and I’m going to say it again – this weather is crazy. It was spring like weather just a week ago and then yesterday it was snowy and the weather forecast for this Tuesday is a potential major snow storm. Part of me would love a snow storm since I’d been wanting more snow this winter. The other part of me is done with winter and ready for a change.

Today I’m sharing another meal I made via Pinterest. This one-pot chili mac & cheese is something I made a while ago but am just getting around to posting now. I used this recipe (here) and didn’t change anything except didn’t use parsley simply because I didn’t have any on hand. When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to make it. Who doesn’t like mac & cheese? Who doesn’t like chili? Combine them together and it’s bound to be a winner!

Since I didn’t change anything from the original recipe I won’t get in depth, just click on the link above. I browned the ground beef with garlic and onion. In a pot I cooked the beans, seasonings, and tomatoes in chicken broth. After that began to simmer I stirred in the macaroni, brought it to a boil and then let it simmer until the macaroni was cooked. Once that was done I removed it from the heat and topped it with shredded cheddar and let it all melt which didn’t take long since it was steaming hot. And voila!
