Chili with macaroni is delicious anytime, and it’s also a great way to stretch your chili.
Chili with macaroni is a favorite anytime with my family but really good during the fall and winter months. I love having soups and stews on hand to reheat for lunch or a quick weeknight meal anytime I need something in a hurry. This is one way we like this great dish. This is good with spaghetti added for the pasta instead of macaroni as well. The pasta is a change to this dish.
Ingredients for Chili with Macaroni
1 pound of ground beef
1 pound of ground turkey
1 regular can chili hot beans
1 regular can kidney beans or pinto beans (I use whatever I have available)
1 large onion, chopped
2 regular cans diced tomatoes
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon garlic powder
3 or 4 tablespoons chili powder
1 cup elbow macaroni, uncooked
3 or 4 cups water
Brown turkey, beef and onion in skillet and drain. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then turn to simmer for about an hour. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
Great with cornbread. Enjoy!
