1/14/08: I've made this recipe a few times now. It's a good chili on it's own...add the mac and it's a meal in a bowl. I added some canned jalepeno peppers this time instead of the bell pepper. It added some nice heat. I also cook only 1 cup of dry noodles for this recipe. Seems to be plenty. Why would anyone make Hamburger Helper when this recipe is so easy and so good! 7/28/05: A really good (and easy) recipe for basic chili mac. It had the perfect amount of heat. I would recommend to others that you buy a good national brand of chili beans for this - I used a store brand and thought my beans tasted bla, but didn't count the recipe down for my mistake. I think next time, with the right beans, it will be perfect. I'm also happy to post Chelgim's first recipe photo (I think). :-)
