What could be better than combining two favorites, Chili and Mac and Cheese? This one-skillet mac and cheese gets kicked up with salsa, ground beef, corn and chili powder. The pasta cooks with the beef and salsa mixture, so cleanup is easy.

    Better than I was expecting.

    I made this last night and it was delicious! I only made a few changes. I added 1 cup of Chicken Broth to the beef, mac and tom. with a pinch of garlic powder. It was a complete hit! Thanks for the recipe.

    Great flavor!

    This recipe was very good. It needed a little more chili powder, but I will make it again!

    Chili Mac

    I love trying new and simple dinners on Monday nights to get the week going on a good note. My 2.5yr old and husband could not get enough of this and we rated it an A+.
