Chili/mac

teeth are still hurting for certain.
I wondered if when I get home from work, I could combine, chili from a can and a box of mac and cheese, cause it's kind of soft and not real hard to chew.
Do you think it would work if I mixed the two? I saw a can of Dennison chili with mac/cheese which gave me the idea

hmmmm, I like chili. I like mac and cheese from a box (I admit), but I don't know if I'd like both combined. Probably because I don't add cheese to my chili. I eat it straight up, of poured over french fries with onions and cheese added. I always have a couple cans of Chunky Roadhouse chili on hand to pour over FFs for a quick lunch/snack

Let us know how it works for you if you try it, lefslover. I wonder if it gets the consistancy of a casserole? Do you actually mix them together after cooking, or does one get poured onto the other?

Trust me - it works. I love chili mac. Around here it is the kind of food yuo make when you just want something to eat and are too tired to cook.

Definitely works. I have done it about 5 times in the last two months. I take ground beef, chili powder, and onions and mix them up. Cook the mac and cheese, combine and have a great meal in a quick amount of time. I swear by it.

I'd forgotten about this thread.
yes, it worked.
I just made the boxed mix of mac/cheese [I never buy these boxed type things] but do keep a few of them on hand for when the baby's come visit.
Heated up the Dennisons chili con carne, mixed them together and gingerly ate.
I must say, it was really good, not gourmet, duh, but tasted just wonderful.
