I do not claim this recipe as my own. I am simply sharing it on my blog for others to be able to find it. I like to have all the recipes I like in one place.

One Pot Chili Mac & Cheese
  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  3. 1 onion, diced
  4. 8 ounces ground beef
  5. 4 cups chicken broth
  6. 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  7. 3/4 cup canned white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  8. 3/4 cup canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  9. 2 teaspoons chili powder
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  11. Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  12. 10 ounces elbows pasta
  13. 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  14. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add garlic, onion and ground beef, and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
  2. Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, beans, chili powder and cumin; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a simmer and stir in pasta. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until pasta is cooked through, about 13-15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat. Top with cheese and cover until melted, about 2 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
