Recipe and photo by:


  •  1 454 g box of elbow macaroni
  •  2 425 g or 14 oz. cans of your favorite chili
  •  5 cups of water
  •  2 cups of shredded old cheddar cheese


  1. In a large cast iron skillet or Dutch oven, place the water and the elbow macaroni. Cook until the noodles are done – you may have to add more water. Make sure to stir so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. You can cook this over the fire or a grill.
  2. When the noodles are done the water should be evaporated ( if not, pour it off)  and you can mix in the cans of chili. Heat up again.
  3. When the chili is heated through, sprinkle the cheese on top.
  4. Return to the fire/grill to melt the cheese.
  5. Dig in!
