I made this Chili Mac for my family and they loved it. I have a homemade chili seasoning mix that I make several batches of to use when I want to make chili. Often times I’ll use a couple of my homemade packets and make a double batch. That way I can freeze an extra batch for one of those nights I know I won’t have a lot of time for cooking. Marry some chili with 3-minute quick cook macaroni, and you have a super fast meal for one of those crazy time crunched nights!
Ronzoni makes a quick cook pasta that is literally done in three minutes. So here’s the beauty of this meal. You defrost the leftover chili in the fridge, then when it’s time to throw together dinner before running out the door, put the chili into a big saucepan and begin reheating on medium. Set a pot of water on to boil, once the bubbles start coming up, add 1 1/2 cups of Ronzoni Quick Cook 3 minute elbow macaroni. Cook for 3 minutes only, then drain and stir into the warmed chili. Now yell “Dinner!”
I would definitely recommend adding this to your must-make ground beef dinner ideas. Enjoy!
