mmm chili mac

Yummm!! The name "Chili Mac" derived from my mom...I LOVE her homemade spaghetti sauce, and then she started making the sauce with little elbow macaroni & added cumin & chili powder. The sauce is thicker & could be eaten alone like chili...mmmmm, so good! I made this in the crockpot, super easy!

makes approx 4 servings

~1 lb. ground turkey or ground lean beef (I used ground turkey)
~1 pkg. McCormick chili seasoning mix
~1 garlic clove; minced
~1 small onion; chopped (if desired)
~1 large 24oz. can of diced tomatoes (I used one with italian seasonings)
~1 4oz. can of tomato sauce (add another if you want the sauce more thin)
~elbow macaroni (I used barilla plus)

Brown ground turkey in pan with chopped onion & garlic. Drain excess liquid, and add chili seasoning packet; mix well.

Coat crockpot with cooking spray & add ground turkey mixture. Pour sauce over top, and mix well. Cook on low for 4 hours or warm for 8 hours. I left mine on for 10 hours on warm. I just clicked it to low when I was making the macaroni.

Serve over macaroni;, enjoy;)

If you want more of a chili, add a can of beans or follow the directions on the back of the McCormick package.
