FREDA's notes for this recipe:
This CHILI MAC casserole Version Was brought to a PotLuck, (this is MY OWN VERSION of her recipe)
Never Fails to Dissappear, with 2# of beef your sure to have more beef than beans in this dish.

Easy Healthy and Tasty. Tastes even better on day 2.

Lightly Spiced, Just add a green salad & some fritos on your plate for a Full Meal Deal.
Make it Your Way...

Karla, Thanks, I like casseroles, But have a problem, its Hard to make small amounts, for one or two. So Have to make and freeze or give away.

Freda, this looks phnomanal. I may have to halve the recipe though, since there's only 3 of us.
