    Slow Cooker Chili Mac
  1. Place ground beef in the bottom of your slow cooker and break into smaller chunks. Stir in remaining ingredients except for the pasta.
  2. Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on HIGH or 8-10 hours on LOW.
  3. In the last 15 minutes of cooking stir in the uncooked pasta and cover.
  4. Stir and test to see if pasta is to your liking. However, even with the slow cooker off the pasta will continue to cook just from the heat of the chili and crock itself so unless your pasta is really chewy or crunchy
  5. We strongly suggest only cooking it for the last 15 minutes of cook time.
  6. Serve immediately with desired toppings.
