This will not be added to my rotation. Very weird. The image makes this look like mac and cheese with a chili base, it is definitely just chili with pasta and some cheese on top. Made a ridiculous amount that I now have to eat, and it is full of cheese and sour cream and the portion size is small so I really don't think it is as healthy as some other recipes here. I should have read through before I made it. If you are going to make this, do not use a skillet. There is a cast iron in the primary photo, don't use that either as I completely destroyed my well-seasoned cast iron. The cheese melts and sticks to the sides and melds into the sauce, forming a goopy broth that completely clings to the sides of a cast iron. It is too much liquid for a cast iron meal. I had to wash it to get the residue off so now I have to re-season. A dutch oven would work much better here or a large pot. Overall very weird, took a long time in the small skillet, not worth it for a mediocre output with lots of chopping and stirring and multiple stages of cooking. Does not look like the picture, the sour cream turns everything this strange light brown color.
Recipe was good and makes a lot. I suggest making it in a 6 qt. Dutch oven. My 12” skillet was full even before I added the beans and pasta.
Loved it! Followed the recipe exactly. Recipe made 6 servings but they were huge. I might split into 8 next time.
