One Pot Beer Chili Mac

I was finally able to locate the photo of the Thug Kitchen 101's Skillet Beer Chili Mac attempt.  Here is my version with the changes I made below...mostly because I didn't have a few things on hand and tweaked based on what was in my pantry.

1 T of Grapeseed Oil
1 Onion, chopped
1 Carrot, chopped
1 Orange Bell Pepper
Pinch Cayenne Powder
2 t Cumin
2 t of Smoked Paprika
Black Sea Salt to taste
2 T Tomato Paste
1 can of unseasoned Tomato Sauce
1 C Beer
3 C Water
3 C Kamut Pasta
1 can Chickpeas 
1/4 C Nutritional Yeast
1 T Maple Syrup
1 T Lemon Juice
Garlic Powder to taste

Last Week - sometime - I made a simple Buffalo Chickpea Wrap.  This is what the inside looked like.  The Buffalo Chickpeas were SO YUMMY.  I will have to see if I can recreate them and NOT lose the recipe I did in the near future

Another quick photo of a recipe I made and lost the actually recipe for...Cheaters Tomato Soup.  I used Canned Diced Tomatoes for the base...that's why I named it Cheaters Tomato Soup!

This is one of the many coins I have gotten recently!  The reason I was interested in it so much is because it said Trinity on it!

And...speaking of are some photos of her!  She's already hit the 8 month mark!  I can't believe it!  I also can't get over her smile, here!

And this one makes me laugh every time!  She was trying to eat those veggie puffs that are in the shape of Cheerio's and it ended up on her nose and stayed there for at least 5 minutes!  

We took a day trip today and found some really awesome places and I will be sharing those places and items within the next couple of weeks - so do check back often!

Now I'm off to catch up on YOUR blogs!  Sorry for not stopping by much lately!


  1. Never tried cooking with beer but I've had fish and chips with beer batter. They do cook stuff with Coke and Guiness stout too.

    1. I think I will try and cook more with beer! It was fun to watch it 'activate' so to a science project LOL

  2. Great idea to use canned diced tomatoes in your tomato soup! Trinity is so adorable! :)

    1. I have been using canned tomatoes quite a bit lately...the price of fresh is pretty high and the flavor and quality pretty low as of late.

  3. Yum I now e a huge craving for tomato soup! Do you puree the diced tomatoes?
    OMG Trinity is a little cutie!! That smile made my day!

    1. I did another cheater soup last night! I hope to post it today! I did puree them in this soup, yes!

  4. Great eats and inspiration here, thanks! Hubby likes to use beer in his vegan chili which we might make tonight. Adorable pics!

    1. I need to make some's been a while!

  5. This sounds great, a really good recipe to try!

    1. I'm wondering how it will differ depending on the type of beer used!?

  6. She is so cute! Especially that veggie puff picture! XD

    That beer chili mac sounds super yummy. Might need to try it out.
