Chili Mac Skillet

Chili mac skillet makes a wonderful weeknight meal when you are in a hurry to make dinner and need something quick.  We love this and I make it often because it is comfort food and filling.  It goes great with grilled cheese, pimento cheese or cornbread.  Chili mac will keep for several days in the fridge and can be reheated.  If it gets too thick just add a little water when reheating.  You might also like our recipe for andouille sausage and rice skillet meal.
