Warming up the Cold

Nothing warms up a cold winter day like Chili Mac n' Cheese. 
 1/2 pound pasta (Cavatappi)
Leftover Chili
Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese

Dinner is done in less than 30 minutes.


  1. I LOVE how easy this is, La! My SIL makes a wonderful Chili Mac and I have often wanted her recipe. I'll definitely try this!


  2. My Mom mad what she called "Mexighetti." It wasn't always spaghetti, but the first time she did it it was, thus her name for it. It's similar to a Cincinnati Chili 3-Way.

    It must be the pasta shape. While Mom's was a summer dish and the Cincinnati Chili is summer/fall, yours look SO warm and wintery filling! YUM! (even first thing in the morning!)

  3. I never understood the concept of combining chili and pasta until recently. I'm not a mid-westerner by birth, so it seemed really strange to combine the two dishes. But Skyline started growing on me- the husband and son kept telling me I should embrace the flavors.... And what do ya know? I kinda like it! Especially when topped with lots of onions!

  4. Looks yummy. May have to try a gluten free version. Stay dry. Wow, it is sure raining.

  5. I could just eat that La,but we had haddock fishcakes tonight also very warming for a cold night! lol Angela

  6. I need some of that right about now. The winds howling outside and I think our 50 degree weather isn't going to last long.

  7. Hi La,
    good way to greet a day! That sound yummy, thanks for sharing.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  8. Hi, my name is Heather! Please email me when you can, I have a question about your blog!


  9. OOOOH, now that looks yummy!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying a prayer for Charlie. In case you didn't see my update, Charlie WAS found! He was injured and required surgery but he is back with his foster family where he can recuperate in a calm and loving enviroment

  10. I can smell that yummy dish right now. Those kinds of meals smell so good when it has been a long day and you come in from the cold. Yummy...have you ever tried homemade chili over mashed potatoes? My mom made that once and it was so good!

  11. That looks so wonderful! I'm stopping by to tell you...

    ♥♥♥ HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!♥♥♥

    Enjoy your special day! Hugs! ♥

  12. Now why don't I ever think to buy Cavatappi pasta? I just don't SEE it & always reach for my old standbys.
    This chili mac would be PERFECT for the cold, wet day we're having.

    I was sorry to read about your Dad & all the other happenings at your house over the holidays, La. Hope everyone is doing better now.


  13. Yum, I think I will make a chilli version for my daughter and I today. Thanks for the idea, Have a great Sunday

  14. Mmmm, this looks good! It looks so filling and perfect for a cold winter day.

  15. Oh yummy and comforting. Perfect for winter. I love the hearts on your blog page. Cute!

  16. I've used chili on spaghetti for Cincinnati style...but this sounds different and delicious! The pepper jack cheese must be fabulous on it!

    Your blog background is so festive!

  17. Hi La, I have never mixed the two dishes but I think I rather like the idea now. I'm going to try it out on my kids when they come to visit this weekend. Thanks for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  18. It looks delicious, La! Haven't seen you in a long time! Hope all is well there!
