Today's recipe is a fun, easy dinner to prepare for your family. A local favorite is Skyline Chili or Gold Star Chili. This chili is sweeter and not as meaty as a typical chili that you think of. It is served either over hotdogs or noodles. We are able to get cans of this “special” chili here in our local grocers and I was looking for a way to mix it up and make a family meal.
I am calling this Chili Mac. If you don't have access to our Cincinnati chili, you could substitute another kind.
I first started by sauteing an onion with a little olive oil.
Next, I added ground beef.
Chili powder (about 1 tbsp) and cayenne pepper (1tsp) give it a zing.
Drain the beef and then add your can of chili. Heat until bubbling.
Boil your pasta and drain.
Combine all in a casserole dish and top with shredded cheese. I used cheddar and mozzarella.
Bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Top with sour cream.
If my kids eat it, then it is a success and this one definitely hit the mark.
Do you love Cincinnati chili? Have you had it before? I hear you either love it or hate it. It's unique and our family loves it,
