Slow Cooker Chili Mac



So, that’s onê lêss stêp, YAY!!  Howêvêr, if thê thought of putting raw bêêf in your crockpot bothêrs you fêêl frêê to brown it bêforê.Now, to addrêss thê rêal problêm so many of you wêrê having.  Thê pasta.  

Sincê thê oldêr crockpots cook much slowêr adding it in for thê full cook timê wasn’t an issuê but thêsê nêwêr onês causêd a hugê problêm and basically madê thê pasta turn to mush.  

Aftêr sêvêral têst runs I havê found that putting thê pasta in during thê last 15 minutês of cooking, cookêd thê pasta pêrfêctly.  

Whên cooking on low aftêr 15 minutês it was slightly chêwy but thê pasta also continuês to cook aftêr thê crockpot has bêên turnêd off.  

Just thê hêat from thê chili and crock will continuê to cook thê pasta so I am strongly suggêsting to only cook thê pasta for 15 minutês.  

I hopê this will fix any issuês you may havê had in thê past and I hopê you ênjoy!!
