YUMMY! Didn't have elbow mac, so used medium-sized shells which came out great. Also added some cayenne & some garlic salt for a bit more of a kick. Very tasty!

I hate beans but as a vegetarian I'm trying to get over this and decided to try chili for the first time. I had everything on hand for this recipe and added chili powder and garlic powder like some people suggested. I also did not bake it like it said at the end instead I just mixed the cheese into each portion which melted it just fine!<br/><br/>I will be making again, I loved the addition of the noodles.<br/><br/>I used vegetarian chili with beans a can of hormel and a can of trader joes.
