There is nothing better on a cold, blustery MN day then coming home to a warm bowl of soup in my mind. We may have lucked out so far this winter and had very few of these days, but I assure you they will make their appearance like they do every year. Miss K is so excited about snow this year. She keeps asking if she can build a snowman, if it’s time to go skating with her cousins or if she can wear her boots. I wish I shared at least some of that enthusiasm.
I don’t. Not a single bit. The only enthusiasm I share with her is that I’ll be warming up in front of the fire place with a big bowl of this delicious Chili Mac! Comfort food is where it’s in the winter. And hot cider, fires and comfy clothes.
The hubby and I both loved this Chili. I liked the addition of pasta to it because you can never have to much pasta in my life! It’s thick and yummy. If you like a little more bite to your chili feel free to add more chili powder. Also it’s a very think, hearty chili with the addition of the pasta. If you prefer it a little thinner then add a little more tomato juice to the mixture!
