chili mac ~ (n)
– The ideal dish for picky toddlers, hungry husbands and busy mamas.
I know there are a ga-zilllion recipes for this out there. It’s like a homemade “beefaroni” …with cheese. Mmmm.
For the record, my husband ate three plates and my four year old cleared her plate. Also, my husband made his lunch the afternoon before. I think he’s excited about this in his lunch pail.
This is the total weeknight/soccer practice/ late day meal. You can even fix it up the night before and pop it in the oven the next day. Wait a minute… what does “pop it in the oven mean”? I know it’s another way of placing it in the oven…but-“pop”? Hmmmm. How about glide it into the oven? I like that. Hey. That’s my new phrase.
“Glide it into the oven”
I will add it to my others: “Blob of” , “Hmmm”. “Ga-zillion”, “mmmm”, and of course “woah”
So- back to this recipe. It’s so easy a caveman could do it.
Except cavemen don’t have ovens. They’d have to glide it into the fire. But, I am pretty sure they don’t have casserole dishes or shredded cheese either. Oh dear. Never-mind about that thought.
I’m totally rambling this morning. It’s because I don’t have a lot of pictures of this dish. But… I do have pictures.
Need some eye candy?
But you have to eat all your chili mac before you eat brownies.
This was another recipe I snagged from Sargento, I was hunting for something “back to school-ish”. And, it’s not bad for you, either.
You could omit the beef in this and substitute black beans or chili beans… mmm, I bet that would be tasty.
I topped mine with shredded reduced fat Mexican style cheese to make it healthier, and to keep my girl-ish figure. 😉
If you want the recipe, just go here: Chili Mac and it’s all ready to print.
A special thanks to Sargento, for allowing me to make this post and feed my hubby four times with it.
