One Pot Chili Mac recipe is the best 30 minute meal I have ever made. It tastes great, very fulfilling and makes great leftovers for lunch for the week. I have to admit I usually do not shy away from my slow cookers because I depend on them. And well I just love the convenience of using them. But I do love 30 minute recipes that my family will eat and enjoy. This recipe is at top of the list!
Last week school started for my three boys and the oldest two have football practice everyday after school. With our busy schedule I have menu planned a lot of easy recipes for dinner. One Pot Chili Mac recipe is so easy and you only have one dish to clean after dinner, which is great for me! My kids love putting extra cheese on top of their chili mac, but you can omit if you want too. But I always say more cheese and butter is always better! Be sure to give One Pot Chili Mac recipe a try soon, you will not be disappointed!
