Reviews for Chili Mac
"Ok, we didn't care for it much."
"I realy loved this one, it had just the right amount of heat, and I love spicey food"
"This was so easy to put together and I loved how it cooks in the slow cooker. I ate mine with a big of hot sauce dashed in it."
"My family loves this easy supper. We dont like it too hot so I put red kidney beans in it. Also, I put diced tomatoes with chilies in it. I use wheat noodles instead of white to make it a little healthier. Serve with cheddar cheese, sour cream and maybe a sandwich! Great way to warm up on a cold day!"
"Definitely a winner in my house! I substituted kidney beans for the hot chili beans since I have small children, but it was really good! A little cheese on top and it's a meal!"
"A nice recipe; I love a good chili mac. I'll definitely make again, although I didn't use the crockpot."
"simple and yummy."
"was very good and simple!"
"My family loved this recipe and said I should make it often. I didn't cook it in the crockpot because I didn't get it in there in time. It turned out great."
"This is a wonderful, filling meal. Smells wonderful while cooking!"
"This was a "hit" with my family of 8. We didn't have green peppers nor the hot chili beans. I used two cans of hot chili and omitted the chili seasoning. As it looked very thick I added a can of beef broth. It turned out excellent."
"I used kidney beans instead of chili beans, and condensed tomato soup instead of the tomato sauce. It turned out great for us too!"
"This was a great recipe. I altered it a bit for our taste- we didn't use the green peppers, we used mild chili beans instead of hot, and I added 1 can of diced tomatoes to it. It turned out great! Also, when it was done we topped with some cheddar cheese. For us, it fed about 7-9 people (each having a small bowl full). I bet I'll be making this again! Maybe with an extra box of elbow macaroni next time."
