My vacation time is coming to a close and we are beginning to get ready for the trip back to Texas.  I am not not looking forward to loading all the kids up and taking the LONG car trip back to Texas.  We are going to take 3 days to get home; Go as far as we can the first day and then hopefully the next two won’t be as bad.
I have had a wonderful time in Idaho and the kids have had a blast too!  I got to meet Jamie’s baby today!  It’s was bittersweet.  She is so beautiful but as I was leaving, I knew that it would be a long time before I got to see her face again (at least in person).  Thank goodness for this blog, Facebook, and chat so I can keep up with Jamie and family.
Today I’m sharing a favorite family dinner of ours.  Hope you try it out.

Like my Tater Tot Casserole, this is a meal I’ve been making for years for my family. I love that it’s a recipe that I usually have all the ingredients for in the pantry (or enough to make it work) and the beans in this recipe can easily be swapped out for ones you have or whatever beans you like best.
This recipe is also so quick and easy to throw together (20-30 mins). Plus it’s done entirely on the stovetop so no need to heat up the house with the oven.

The original recipe called this Cincinnati-Style Chili but we call it Chili Spaghetti. (And yes it has beans, even though my Texan husband would claim it isn’t chili if it has beans.)
