Killer Chili Mac

Who doesn't love carbo-licious pasta mixed with all the traditional chili fixin's, a bit of spice, and melty cheese? No one I want to meet, that's for sure. The queen of Mac is at it again - Barb from That Was Vegan? provides a wonderfully tasty and healthy take on chili mac'n'cheese. This recipe made for some comforting lunches and was very filling! I only used one can of beans and didn't include the chilis (because I didn't have any on hand), but it was still very satisfying. I'm sure it would have been even better with fresh tomatoes, but alas... they are not yet in season. It was a tie in tastiness with my chili mac recipe, that's for sure!


Jealousy-inducing lunchtime feast.


This recipe makes a ton of food. How much, exactly? I'll show you...


Uhh... yeah. Tons of food! I have leftovers in the freezer and had the opportunity to offer dinner to an omni friend - it was approved! Don't you just love sharing delish vegan comfort foods? This is sure to please a crowd, or just yourself (for many days!), so give it a try!

Thanks for your creativity and obscene use of Daiya, Barb! :)

Manly man food! Chili Mac style dishes are so big here in the midwest! Wish this was the stuff served in schools, vs the "real" chili mac with the "real" horseshoes!

I'm so glad you liked it! And thank you for reminding me about it... I really do need to make it again soon :)

My family would love this. I also wanted to lick the screen as I'm on day 22 of my 30-40 juice cleanse. Always looking for inspiration for meals to fix my family. Thank you!!
