when you make a lot of chili and then you eat a lot of chili, things start to get a bit monotonous and you’re going to need to mix it up. reheated meat and bean and vegetable goodness with the chips and the greek yogurt just wasn’t going to hack it for too long. so i got a little more creative (see above). just boiling some pasta made this chili new again. funky pasta with nooks and crannies works well and i just so happen to think it might even taste better than normal (read: spaghetti, penne, elbow) pasta. mixing together the pasta with the chili, topping it with cheese, and melting it gave me instant chili mac. or maybe it’s a cheesy chili pasta bake (except that i cheated and microwaved it to melt the cheese). either way, shazam! … a whole new meal.
