  • 2 cups mushrooms diced
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 30 oz chili beans in chili sauce
  • 28 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp salt more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 8 oz elbow macaroni
  • Cheddar cheese as desired


  • In a skillet at medium heat, saute the mushrooms.  I sprinkled mine with worchestershire sauce and a little taco seasoning.  After they are cooked, put them in the crock pot bowl.
  • Add all the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot bowl and mix.
  • Cover and cook for 4-6 hours on high, or 8-10 hours on low heat.
  • When there is about 15 minutes of cook time left, add the uncooked macaroni to the crock pot and stir.
  • When the pasta is done, serve a portion and add cheddar cheese.  Mix in the cheese and add whatever toppings you want to the serving; sour cream, greek yogurt, green onions, corn chips, etc.  Mix cheese into each serving and not the whole pot for the best cheese consistency.
