Chili Mac & Cheeze

Mac & Cheeze and chili are two classics perfect for warming up on a cold winter day. Combine the two, and get double the comfort along with extra plant-based protein and nutrition.


  • 1 box Daiya Deluxe Cheddar Style Mac & Cheeze
  • 1 can mixed beans
  • 3/4 cup dry green lentils
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp chili seasoning, see notes for our favourite seasoning recipe


In a large pot combine mixed beans, green lentils, diced tomatoes and chili seasoning.

Bring chili to a bowl, cover and simmmer for 20 minutes or until lentils are cooked. Be sure to stir occasionally so beans do not cook to the bottom of the pot.

Halfway through cooking the chili, cook the Daiya Deluxe Cheddar Style Mac & Cheeze according to the package instructions.

Combine the chili and the Mac & Cheeze. Enjoy!

Top with Daiya Cheddar Shreds for extra Cheezy-ness!     Chili Seasoning:

  • 2 tbsp dried minced onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
