MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2012

I did like this meal and my boyfriend commented saying it was very good. Unfortunately I spaced on measuring out the beans and I just put the whole can in after I drained them (oops!) I used chili beans instead since that was what I had and I think it tasted fine with them. Next time I'll remember to measure out the beans since I didn't get to enjoy the macaroni as much. Any suggestions on things to add to kick up the flavor?

It was very bland... I put some of my Tastefully Simple Wahoo Chili mix in it and it was better but I wont make again with just this recipe. Also I topped with cheese :)

This was a hearty meal that was quick to put together. I had to more than double the recipe to feed my family. I don't know that I would always add the relish as it had more of the flavor of sloppy joe than chili. Still, it was a nice change from traditional chili.

I cooked the macaroni in beef stock rather than water; a lot more flavor. Also used V-8 juice, didn't have tomato, came out fine. Also, use a little more garlic (my husband likes garlic a lot.

My mom used to make this and she called it "Slum Gullen". I have made it for years and the family always loved it. We use chilli seasoning, a can of sweet corn and dont drain the beans. Very affordable meal.
