Baseball season has me running here, there, and everywhere. We are at practice 3 days a week with two games weekly. I try not to pick up fast food, but I will admit that at least one game a week we run out to get food since the game lasts from 4-7pm including warm-ups. This leaves me scheduling my meals for the week. I make sure to have meals prepped on practice days so that when we come home we can just warm and eat. I usually pick foods that still taste good when they are reheated. Or that can sit in the crock-pot or instant pot.
This week I am excited to try this twist on chili. Everyone in my family loves Mac N Cheese, and everyone loves Chili. So, why not combine the two? Thank you to BellyFull for this fun and simple recipe. Bonus points for making it in a dutch oven because I can adapt it to cook in the instant pot. In order to cook it in the instant pot, I just made sure to brown the meat before I placed the ingredients in the Instant Pot.
I am sure this one-pot chili mac will become a hit with my family since it is so simple to create and enjoy. Thank you to BellyFull for the idea. Be sure to head over to BellyFull for the full tutorial, and to see their other great recipes!
