This recipe is so easy and I like to make it when I’ve made a huge batch of macaroni and cheese the day before so I can use up all the leftovers.
Easy Chili Mac N Cheese
- 2 boxes of your favorite macaroni and cheese, prepared as directed on the box
- 1-2 cans of your favorite chili (I prefer to use the ‘no beans’ for this)
While the macaroni is still warm add the chili and stir. Het over low heat for 5-10 minutes until heated through.
Serve with a salad and bread to complete the meal.
Land Your Man Baked Beans (original recipe here)
2-28 oz cans original baked beans
1 large finely chopped sweet onion
1 large finely chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 lb hamburger (ground turkey or pork will work too)
1/3 c ketchup
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
4 Tbsp light brown sugar
3 Tbsp hot sauce
6 slices hardwood smoked bacon
1 pkg taco seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown the hamburger. Add taco seasoning while browning beef but DO NOT add water. Drain beef and set to the side.
Combine beans, onions, peppers, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar & hot sauce in a 16″ X 10″ casserole dish.
Add seasoned meat to the bean mixture.
Place bacon on top of beans. Cover dish with aluminum foil, leaving a corner folded back for venting. Bake for about 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking about 30 minutes or until bacon is brown and excess liquid has been cooked out.
Serve with Mac-N-Cheese, slaw, and rolls. Enjoy
