Not only is it deliciously comforting, this Chili Mac skillet recipe is done in about 20 minutes start to finish!  Perfect for those busy weeknights betweens school and swimming lessons.  While this is cooking I usually prep a quick salad and slice some bread for a complete meal!

In this recipe the onion is shredded using a cheese grater, this gives you maximum flavor in every bite (plus the kiddos don’t even know they’re in there!).   I have made this with ground turkey as well, the results were just as great!

  1. How many servings is this for ?

  2. I made this for dinner tonight for my husband and me. It is quite good. Served it with cooked carrots and my DH had a slice of bread. I made 1/2 batch of the chili mac and split that into half for another meal on Monday. So . . . I would say that the whole recipe serves 12.
