      Being from the midwest, his is very much the way I make mac and cheese. Here in southern Florida they would not think of adding macaroni to chili. It is the best way to serve up this dish as comfort food, people just don't know what they are missing. Five stars on this recipe!

      Thank You very much. Cant wait till you publish your novel curious to check it out. ps as far as healthy mac&cheese you have options to health it up,tweak it to your liking and with out messing up the yum factor. You can bake your mac&cheese using low fat cheese. Baked or stove top can do with out butter just add more low fat milk or whole which ever heck soy milk ? Turkey chili or a brand that is know for best nutrients. Even do 2 to 1 ratio of noodles and chili.

      Those three words...mac and cheese....are enough to get me to read an article. LOL I have loved mac and cheese since I was a little kid. I'm not sure how healthy it is but it is soul food as far as I'm concerned. I'll give this recipe a try; thank you and I hope you are enjoying your experience here at HP. If I can ever be of help, drop me a line at and I'll try to be of assistance.
