When you are looking for a super fast, easy, and frugal meal that can feed a large family then you should try this ultimate comfort food of Chili Mac. This recipe tastes even better when reheated so be sure to make more than what you think you will need so you have leftovers.

Two ingredients are all you need to put this dish together. A one pound box of elbow macaroni and a can of Hormel Chili with Beans. That's it! You can use more or less chili or pasta depending on your tastes or how many you are cooking for.

Cook the macaroni according to the package instructions. Drain and rinse. Put back in saucepan and stir in your chili. Mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

You can divide the leftovers into individual serving size containers to keep in the refrigerator or you can freeze. That way they are easily reheated in the microwave when you need dinner in minutes.
