Ragu Old World Sauce

Today’s recipe is my changed up version of Ragù’s Family Favorite Chili Mac. I boosted the flavor by adding green chiles, cumin and hominy.

The result is a thick, lightly spiced sauce that could be served on its own as a delicious bowl of chili. Spooning it over pasta and topping with traditional chili accompaniments makes for a hearty, crowd-pleasing meal.
