"It's true that chili mac is already a Mexican-inspired dish, but this version gets even closer to its roots with authentic Mexican ingredients including chorizo and poblano peppers. It's also quick (as long as you've got the pepper-roasting down) and easy - a true one pot meal. Serve in bowls, and garnish with small dollops of sour cream or a sprinkling of queso anejo." — wheatsicle

Nice and spicy, loved it! I halved this recipe for my family of 3. The chorizo gives a smoky flavor. I omitted the salt since the canned tomatoes and chorizo have plenty of sodium already, and didn't miss it. Topped with mozerella. My 2 year old loved it! Perfect for cold weather! Bell peppers would probably work, too.
I made this for a banquet and it was pretty good, but it took me quite awhile to make it. It's certainly not a simple recipe that you can whip up quick. At least I wasn't able to
OH MY GOSH!!!!! This stuff is too good to be true! Healthy easy AND so so good!
Sustituted Beef chorrizo for pork and added a can of corn. The whole family enjoyed this dish.
This was pretty good. I added 3/4 packet of homemade taco seasoning instead of salt and pepper to give it a little extra flavor. I put the pasta in uncooked and it cooked up fine in about 15 minutes without adding any extra liquid.
Great recipe, making it for the 3rd time tonight! I use kidney beans because I prefer them and bell peppers because I find it hard to fine poblanos.
Ok, this was great! BUT YOU HAVE TO COOK THE PASTA BEFORE YOU MIX IT WITH ALL THE OTHER STUFF!!!!!!!!! OR AT LEAST SEMI- COOKED!!!!!! IT DOES NOT COOK LIKE THE RECIPE STATES. With that in mind.......
A big hit with the family! This was VERY easy, quick, and delicious. Even my picky eater enjoyed it. I used grond beef instead of the chorizo sausage, added a can of corn. Instead of using four poblano's, I used two poplano's and two green bell peppers. This was a big hit and EVERYONE said "Mom!!! Make this again!!!" It is delicious with or with out cheddar cheese on top. (This review is based on 8 servings)
Very easy! Love the poblanos and black beans. Added a couple more garlic cloves and some cumin.
NOT TO OUR TASTE- HER RECIPE WORKS OUT AS IT IS WRITTEN- AND WE LIKE CHORIZO, BUT IT'S TOO MUCH OF A CHANGE FROM OUR USUAL CHILI MAC FOR US- BUT YOU MIGHT LIKE IT--
