This was the best chili mac recipe I have ever made. Although I had to "rearrange" a few things because I just didnt have them in my cupboard! The only thing I lacked was a can of the Mexican stewed tomatoes and I had a can of regular, and I also added a can of chili beans, yummy!! Didn't have quite enough cups of cheese so I had slices of real Kraft cheese. Very creamy, not dry, very yummy with homemade bread a salad!

Needed to use up some leftover spaghetti so followed recipe except left out the bell pepper and used chopped canned tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, and poured over the spaghetti. Husband loved it and thought it was as good as served by one of our local chain restaurants. Will definitely add this to his "favorites" list. Thanks for the post!


I made this recipe exactly as the recipe called for the first time through and we really enjoyed it. It was quick and easy to throw together. This is a great recipe to build on, you could add beans, corn, jalapenos, among other things to suit your personal taste. I will definitely make this again.
