Cheesy Chili Mac

A food post and it's not Friday? I know, I can't believe it!

I have made this Cheesy Chili Mac for years, but I had never had it until Travis and I started dating. We had only been dating for about a month when one night Travis came over and was going to make Zachary and I dinner. I thought this was a very interesting concoction and wasn't sure how Zach and I were going to like it, but we were surely going to give it a try. And I guess you already know how it went, because 8 years later I'm still making it.

Extra Cheesy Chili Mac

Gather your ingredients. Typically I just use one can of chili but to make it extra saucy I grabbed this can of Hormel Chili with "no beans" to add in.


Boil your water and cook the noodles as directed on the package. Any noodle will do. I typically use Penne or Macaroni noodles.


Add in your tomato sauce and chili




Give it a good stir then add in your cheese. My cheesy picture was blurry, but you get the idea!

I found the Hormel Chili with beans and a can of Hormel Chili no beans right together in the chili section at Walmart.
