    I didn't use the corn or beans and used 1 (16 oz) can of diced tomato and 1 (16 oz) can of tomato sauce. It's got just a little heat, which can be adjusted easily. Also just used Parm. cheese on individual servings. This was great, because I have packages of 1-1/2 lbs of beef. Got "this is good" from my 11 yo. :)

    good solid chili mac recipe. I didn't add onion peppers or beans. Instead I used one 14oz can of diced tomatoes with green peppers and onions. I added 6oz of tom sauce and 2oz of salsa. turned out GREAT! Even my picky husband ate it. Thanks for the easy recipe!

    Thank you LEEZAH4 ! My hubbie said this was the best chili-mac I ever made. I spiced up the recipe a bit. BAM! I added a teaspoon of Tabasco. It wasn't too hot just pleasantly spicy. I only added one 14.5 oz can of tomatoes because I don't like my chili-mac too soupy. I also served it with shredded colby-mozzarella cheese on top.

    Nice, simple and tasty. 5 stars for ease of prep and cooking, 4 for taste, 19 month old son and DH inhaled it. I used 1 can diced tomato and 1 can stewed tomato vs adding green pepper, otherwise followed recipe. No big exciting flavors, just basic comfort food. Topped with sharp cheddar and a spash of hot sauce. Makes a big batch, enough for the 3 of us to have 2 meals. Will make again.

    Didn't add pepper or beans. Added a bit extra garlic, but skipped the onion. Used RoTel diced tomatoes with green chilis, chili flavored. Added cheese. This was quick to throw together and smelled great. My husband LOVED it. I'm less of a chili mac lover, but I thought it was pretty good too. Thank you for a good recipe!
