Hearty Chili Mac Recipe

Luckily, this recipe makes a lot, since everyone is apt to want another bowl. It freezes well and makes excellent leftovers-if there is any left. Not that I'm a retired farm wife, I enjoy traveling and volunteering. —Fannie Wehmas, Saxon, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 25, 2013

"Because I didn?t add the beans, I increased the noodles to one cup (112 g.), it still wasn?t thick enough for a Chili Mac, but it was perfect for a new twist on chili! I may make this for my chili cook off this year adding a couple cans of green chilies. Increase the noodles for a hearty chili mac. I will make this again and again."

"I've made this recipe a few times and we really enjoy it. I also increase the amount of macaroni I put in it as it makes it heartier."

"Ran across this recipe and it sounded so good...and it was! Simple to prepare and such great flavors! I did use 1 cup of macaroni instead of 1/2 cup...my hubby told me it was a "keeper"!"
