Chili Mac Dinner

chili mac dinner

This recipe has been in my side of the family for a long time. My dad said that it was about the only thing his little sister knew how to make growing up. He ate a lot of chili mac when it was her turn to cook. He loved it though!  I remember eating it quite a bit growing up as well. It’s a easy to prepare meal that your whole family will enjoy. I have continued to make this recipe and carry on the tradition of chili mac in my own home. My family enjoys it as well. I sure hope your family does as well.
