Easy Chili Mac

Winter… the time of soups and stews… and Monday Night football…. Relax and watch the game and still serve a hearty meal… Chili Mac fits the bill perfectly!
You can either make my Crock Pot Chili… set it up in the morning…. And just make the macaroni in the evening….or make my  30 Minute Chili… have it one day .. and use the leftovers for this Chili Mac meal.
Chili is a great option.. since the leftovers seem to get even better.
Not many tips here… since you will find them in the Chili recipes…. but one tip … which is probably the best tip of all… you can easily freeze chili in air tight containers….  So make a big ole pot of Chili and serve it one week…. Freeze the leftovers and serve Chili Mac a few weeks later… now how perfect is that?
Toppings are always welcome….and another great addition to your menu is corn bread.. it goes so well with Chili … I have a great recipe… comes out perfect every time… and makes a large 9 x 13 dish of it… perfect for feeding a crowd.  Click here for the Sweet Cornbread recipe.
