Today’s Menu: Buffalo Chili Cheese Mac
Happy Christmas Eve all! Hope all of you are having a good one today! Cloudy and rain on and off with a high in the 50’s. Finished wrapping some gifts earlier today. Then helped clean the house, with my new cordless Hoover Vac, which I love using. Had some friends and family stop by throughout the day, good to see everyone. For dinner tonight it’s Buffalo Chili Cheese Mac.




Buffalo Chili Mac 007
A while back I had made some Buffalo Chili Mac and Cheese and froze the leftovers. So I set the container in the fridge overnight to thaw. A winning dinner combo of Wild Idea Buffalo and Velveeta Cheesy Skillets – Chili Cheese Mac. I used a 1 lb. package of Wild idea Buffalo Ground Round, 99% Lean. I love using Buffalo when ever I can, Buffalo over Beef. Below is the original post on how I prepared it. Merry Christmas everyone!




Turkey Chili Mac and Cheese 010
The Cheesy Skillet Dinners kit includes: Pasta, Velveeta Cheese Sauce, and Seasoning pack. All I had to do was add the 2 cups of water and 1 lb. of Ground Buffalo, and 1 can of Joan of Arc Light Red Kidney Beans. Using the Extra Lean Ground Buffalo instead of the Ground Beef you can lower the calorie count by anywhere from 40–50 calories! When I last made this last week I used Extra Lean Ground Turkey. As I browned the Buffalo I added Sea Salt, Pepper, and Ground Smoked Cumin for seasoning. It’s ready in about 9 minutes. I then added 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans, 2 cups of water, the seasoning and the pasta. Simmered for 10 – 12 minutes and added the Velveeta Cheese and your ready for dinner. I’ll leave the instructions at the end of the post. It’s 380 calories and 28 carbs but you can lower the calorie count by using the Ground Buffalo or Ground Turkey as stated above. Love these one pan, quick, easy, and delicious dinners! I also had a couple of slices of Baked Sour Dough Mini Boule Bread. For dessert later, all Fruit, a Del Monte No Sugar Added Peach Chunk Cup and some Honey Crisp Apple Slices.
