Chili Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

Monica H


This was a spur-of-the moment dish and it came out tasty! I mostly don't like using prepared, boxed stuff, but I was pressed for time; this would probably be better from scratch using elbow macaroni and none of the packet cheese, and regular chili powder instead of the one fished out of the ramen packet, but using what I had was great for a quick meal. Next time I also will add some diced chilies and carmelized onions.
