Chili Mac is the best one pot weeknight meal! It combines everyone's favorite comfort food recipes: chili and mac and cheese to make a flavorful creamy dinner that's sure to impress the whole family!
Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat.
Add onions and peppers and saute for 4 minutes, stirring often.
Add ground beef and saute until brown, breaking up as it cooks. Drain if needed.
Stir in chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
Add Tuttorosso Petite Diced Tomatoes, pinto beans, broth, milk and macaroni to the pot and stir to combine. Bring to a boil.
Once boil, reduce heat to medium low and cover. Cook for around 12 minutes stirring periodically to prevent sticking.
Uncover and stir in 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar. Top evenly with remaining shredded cheddar.
Cover and turn off heat. Leave covered for a few minutes until cheese is fully melted. Serve immediately topped with sliced green onion.
Pasta brands may vary in cooking time. Taste after 12 minutes and if too chewy, cook a minute or two longer.
