Easy Cheesy Chili Mac - Instant Pot or Not

Easy Cheesy Chili Mac – Instant Pot or Not

If you’re a follower, ya all know by now that I was down in Atlanta at the end of May, early June for my daughter’s wedding. I miss those guys so much, Jess & Brandon and their combination of seven (not a typo – seven) children. And I vowed to get Jess going with the Instant Pot I got her one Christmas, just to try to make life a bit easier. Well, it doesn’t get much easier than this Easy Cheesy Chili Mac, which can be made in the Instant Pot or in the standard old fashioned way, stove and oven.

So over the long weekend, temps way up in the 90’s (oh why is the weather so craaaazy this year?) I somehow got the idea that I wanted some of that Old Fashioned Tuna Macaroni Salad. You know the one I mean, all cool, creamy deliciousness with a few crunchy veggies and that tuna that somehow melds in and makes everything so rich.

Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese with Herbed Bread Crumbs

Every once in a while I revisit Macaroni & Cheese. See. I’m always being seduced by gorgeous photos, and ultimately get disappointed. It seems every recipe I’ve ever tried had something going on with it that just wasn’t quite what fits my version of a perfect Mac & Cheese. Finally, after making so many over the years, and looking at so many recipes, I set about to make my own Ultimate Macaroni & Cheese with Herbed Bread Crumbs.

Classic American Goulash sometimes called Macaroni Beef or Chili Mac.

Mom’s Classic American Goulash

Mom’s Classic American Goulash is an old American standby that only has the slightest resemblance to its namesake, Hungarian Goulash; both types of Goulash contain beef and both have noodles and that’s pretty much where the similarities end. The Classic American Goulash is a casserole of ground beef, noodles, tomatoes, and a few seasonings, sometimes topped with a little cheese. Simple, tasty, cheap and filling, Goulash is familiar to generations of Americans and is comfort food in many families.
