Baked Chili Mac
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
19 ingredients
6-8 servings
In searching what to make for dinner tonight, I took out a package of ground meat (buffalo, specifically) from the freezer, and found a box of elbow macaroni. Looked like Chili Mac makings to me! :) I had never made Chili Mac before (I just remember having it in the cafeteria when in grade school), so I took a look at what was here on Zaar… and was surprised not find many recipes for it. I put together a recipe out of what I found here and elsewhere online, but the below meat chili mac was somewhat adapted from Miss Annie's vegetarian Marvelous Macaroni Chili. Very tasty, very flexible! :) This is a Pantry Challenge recipe.
