- Incorporate the chili: Add the spices and stir, then follow with your canned ingredients, broth, and uncooked pasta. Stir everything together once more and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cover to allow the chili mac and cheese to cook, usually between 9 – 12 minutes. Stir in one cup of cheese and then sprinkle the remainder over top, cover to allow the cheese to melt.
