Chili Mac

This is comfort food at its best.  This dish was inspired by one of my favorite quick weeknight meals - Spicy Chicken Mac.  I love everything about that dish and decided I needed to make a beef version.  We love chili at our house, so I went with an easy Chili Mac.

This was delicious.  It only takes a few minutes to make and it is all in one skillet.  Yay for easy clean up!  This very filling and hit the spot on a cold night.  We served this with some Cheesy Biscuits to complete the meal.  This is also good reheated.

  5. Do you cook the macaroni first, or put it in there raw?
