    Just made this right now! super easy! and tasty...and more nutritious than other recipes for Chili Mac I saw out there. I added 2 green peppers, and a whole onion. Also, we have so many tomatoes in the garden now, so threw a bunch in the blender and added dried basil for that 'stewed tomato' taste. Overall just great! thanks, eva

    This was very easy to make. The recipe came out dry, I would say it’s just ok. It definitely makes a lot so it’s good if you have a big family and it’s filling.

    It sounded great and I followed the recipe to a T. So bland and tomatoey. Then I started tweaking and added more garlic, chili powder, more cumin....just didn't like it much.

    Not really a question, but just wanted to point out that the recipe is wrong. It tells you to add 14 ingredients, cook, then sprinkle with cheese. However, there are 15 ingredients that need to be added, if you only add the 14 called for, you won't be using the tomato paste, which I think you'd need in this recipe. Really wish they'd get these recipes CORRECT!
