Chili Mac & Cheese

 

I came across this recipe on Damn Delicious . Make sure to check out her other recipes. They all look so good.

Chili Mac & Cheese

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 8 ounces ground beef
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup canned white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 10 ounces elbows pasta
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

My swaps:

Ground chicken, 15oz fire roasted tomatoes & 15oz Bush’s best white chili beans(rinsed). I think the Bush’s beans also gave it more flavor since its in a mild chili sauce. I also skipped the parsley.

-You just put olive oil in a pan. Sautee onion & garlic. Add your choice of ground meat.

-Stir in broth, seasoning, beans, tomatoes, pasta. Bring to boil & cover.

-Turn off, remove from heat. Add cheese on top.

This is great for dinner, lunch, & tastes even better the next day. I think I might add mushrooms next time.

What is your favorite one pot meal?
