A childhood comfort food – made lighter! This Lighter Chili Mac Recipe takes a favorite from everyone’s childhood and turns it into a delicious dinner.
For some reason, ever since 2015 started, I feel like I can’t even keep track of the days. Like most of the time, I honestly don’t even know what day it is. I sat in the parking lot at Target the other day for several minutes, trying to figure out if it was Monday or Tuesday. (And I must have been really tired because it didn’t even occur to me to check my phone!)
I blame it on being a work at home mom. Sometimes, what day it is just doesn’t really matter. Most days are pretty much the same, so it really doesn’t matter if it’s Monday or Tuesday.
But seriously – how hard is it to remember what day of the week it is?
All I know is that any night calls for this lighter version of a favorite comfort food. This lighter Chili Mac Recipe has all of the flavor, but clocks in a little healthier than the regular recipe. This cuts back on the pasta portion of most chili mac recipes. You get more chili, less mac. At first I thought I was going to hate that, but as it ended up, I really loved this Lighter Chili Mac Recipe. You still get all of the flavor.
I love it when a lighter recipe is just as good as – if not better than – it’s original counterpart. This is a delicious recipe that belongs on the rotation!
