Easy Chili Mac and Cheese

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.
