Easy Chili Mac Recipe

I’m trying to cram in as many comfort food recipes as I can while the weather is still crisp and cool. Before we know it I’ll be hating my life shopping for swimsuits. It’s been about 4 years since I’ve worn a swimsuit…but judging from Henry’s extreme love of bath time I think we have a pool lover on our hands.

ANNNYWAY, it’s still Winter and last time I went outside I still needed a coat…so there’s still time for pasta and cheese and hot perfect dinners.

This Instant Pot Chili Mac checks all the boxes…EASY, quick, comforting, and delicious. It’s my kind of meal, so I hope that it’s yours as well!

Loaded Instant Pot Chili Mac Recipe

We have been LOVING our Instant Pot and I hope you guys aren’t tired of the new recipes by now! If you don’t have an Instant Pot (pressure cooker), I do have an awesome Loaded Chili Macaroni and Cheese recipe that’s made stovetop. Whichever way you go, you can’t go wrong. This meal never gets old to us at our house.

If you’re wanting to try out the Instant Pot and aren’t sure which one to get, I’ve linked to my favorites in the “Shop This Post” section below. I recommend the 6 qt for families of 4 or the 8 qt if you’re consistently serving a crowd. Some of our other pressure cooked favorites include Classic Pot Roast, Honey Baked Ham, Chicken Tortilla Soup, and of course Zuppa Tuscana (I could eat that every dang day).
