One Pot Chili Mac {No Boil}

One Pot Chili Mac {No Boil} - chili and pasta simmered in the same pot! No need to precook the pasta! Great quick and easy weeknight meal!

One pot, no-boil dishes are my favorite! I love how easily they come together and how easy they are to clean up! This One Pot Chili Mac is no exception. I browned the meat and then threw everything else in the pot. I let it simmer for about 15 minutes and dinner was ready. 

I served this with some Texas Toast Cornbread, because chili needs cornbread. Feel free to top this Chili Mac with your favorite chili toppings - sour cream, cheese, jalapeƱos, and Fritos. This was SO good. I ate WAY too much of it! It was even good reheated for lunch. This would be a great dish to serve while having friends over to watch football!

  3. Super quick question... did you mince the garlic cloves, or just let them cook in there whole for the flavor?

  7. I made this last night and it was fantastic! And it was even better that there was only one pan to wash. It's a definite keeper and I'm adding it to our rotation.

  8. Do you simmer everything with the cheese, or do you add that in after?
