Directions

  1. Make the macaroni and cheese: bring a big pot of water to a boil; add salt and cook macaroni 5-8 minutes, until just tender; drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°; butter a 2 ½ to 3 quart casserole.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan; sprinkle in the flour, stirring constantly.
  4. Heat the milk to just below boiling and stir it into the flour-butter mixture, stirring constantly until thickened; add in the salt and mustard.
  5. In a big bowl, combine the macaroni, white sauce, and cheese, stirring just enough to blend.
  6. Pour the mixture into the casserole and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Make the chili: in a skillet, saute the onion and garlic in the oil until soft.
  8. Add in the beef; cook until browned, breaking up any clumps; drain excess fat.
  9. Add in the barbecue sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce; simmer 15 minutes.
  10. Add as much crushed tomatoes as needed to keep the chili loose.
  11. Serve the chili in broad, shallow bowls atop the macaroni and cheese.
