I’ve made this easy one-pot meal twice in the last two weeks.
Because I love Chili-Roni. And so do the kids.
If you’re looking for a fast and easy meal your whole family will love, add Chili-Roni to your list. Because:
That means the smallest amount of cleanup possible.
The whole thing comes together in 30 minutes.
Pairs perfectly with the balsamic-kale salad*.
*The one that taught our kids to be salad believers.
This recipe feeds a crowd.
You’ll have plenty to save for another dinner or share with someone in need.
Everyone loves this dinner.
It’s a four-thumbs-up crowd pleaser.
