Chili Mac

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.

Combine all in a casserole dish and top with shredded cheese.  I used cheddar and mozzarella.

 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,

To life feeling like home!
