This chili macaroni is a recipe that has been handed down from my husband’s grandma, to his mom to me! It is a kid favorite that adults enjoy too! There are never left overs of this dish – every last piece of macaroni is gobbled up in no time at all! (Kind of amazing what a can of chili and some macaroni noodles can do!) Here is the simple recipe:

Chili Macaroni


  • 1 cup of elbow macaroni
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 – 15oz can of chili without beans (unless you love beans!)
  • 1 – 10.75 oz can of tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese

*Please Note – different brands might have different sizes of cans of chili and tomato soup. Measurements listed above are approximate. 


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large pot, boil and drain your pasta. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, brown and drain your ground beef, then add it to  your pot of cooked, drained pasta.
  3. Stir in the chili and tomato soup and blend well.
  4. Pour the macaroni mixture into a 13 x 9 inch casserole dish and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and pasta is heated through.
