Ready in 50 minutes
My Mother used to make this easy recipe and I still love it. It's great for busy week nights.
"I will make this again. I added a leftover green pepper that I had to use up and added some extra spice because I think i made too much pasta. But it will feed my family of 6 easily that way. Next time I may try it with sausage and hamburger for fun. Thanks"- Danine
Top-ranked recipe named "Favorite Chili Mac"
Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.
Cook ground beef with onion in a 6-quart saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until crumbly and no longer pink. Drain, if needed. Stir in chili powder and crushed red pepper (if using). Add tomatoes and beans; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer for 20 minutes. Add cooked macaroni; cook for 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
This freezes well and makes excellent leftovers -- if there is any left.

rtmama01 5 months agoI took the advice of other reviewers and made a few changes. Used twisty noodles, chili beans with a lil juice, chili seasoning packet and a lil crushed red pepper. My family absolutely LOVED it! Will definitely make again!
Jldozer 7 months agoVery good. I switched out the kidney beans for chili beans and instead of chili powder used a packet of chili spice mix.
