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.
