Cheeseburger Chili Mac and Cheese

Crockpot Cheeseburger Chili Mac and Cheese

This was delicious! I actually modified it to cook in the crock pot all day from a Rachael Ray recipe that used the stove top. I also changed the spices to give it a real kick. Plus, the carrot gives us a little vegetable. At least it's something! Jesse and I loved this!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper (this gives is a MAJOR kick, just use 2 Tbsp of chili powder if you don't like spicy foods) :)
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 2 cups beef stock (it will cook down in the crock all day)
  • Half a box of elbow macaroni
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp yellow cheddar (the sharper the better!)
  • 1 shredded carrot
Yields: 4 servings

Add spices, ketchup, mustard, beef stock, carrot and beef in crockpot. You can put raw meat in the crockpot; it is safe! This saves a lot of time, too.

About 20 minutes before you'd like to eat, boil water and drop the pasta in. Cook to al dente and then toss in crockpot to mix with everything else for a little bit. Mix the cheese in too.
