– Always in my heart
I remember when I was younger, Chilli Mac Recipe with cornbread was one of those wonderful comforting meals that my mom would make at the beginning of the week and would serve as leftovers for two more days. I think I can remember my first impression of it actually. I thought that it was weird that chilli had noodles in it. But I loved it more than regular chilli ( I probably still do). But this is a great meal to eat on the weekends and to even have for football and tailgating parties.
Now there is one ingredient that I could have used but I chose not to. That was beans. Some people do put beans in their Mac. There is nothing wrong with it if you want to do that, I suppose. As far as the meat, I used ground beef (surprising I don’t really eat red meat) and andouille sausage. I was actually a bit disappointed using the sausage because it wasn’t what I expected. It was still delicious, however. I guess I was expecting a smoky and flavorful sausage. So I recommend using Chorzo sausage (Mexican sausage) or diced smoked sausage. But using this recipe is good as well. Here is the basic recipe, but please feel free to add and minus things that fits your preference.
