The Duggars make some pretty “God awful” recipes, but this one just might take the cake. While Jill has been posting some (seriously horrifying) recipes these days, we found an old clip from 2014 that proves the famous family’s meals have always been, well, nasty. 

“Cincinnati chili!!!! ?” they wrote on a video of dry spaghetti with a greasy red sauce. “Aunt Pam makes this for us every time we come to town!” Watch the video above (if you dare). 

Even back then, people were repulsed. One person wrote on the Insta clip, “Gross,” while another added, “Very runny Bolognese.” A third and fourth chimed in, “Gagggg!!!!” and “Worst chili in the world!!”

Just yesterday, however, fans praised Jill for sharing a recipe that actually contained fresh veggies — and not just canned ingredients. The former Counting On star — whose husband was given the boot last year — showed off her “Spectacular Sautéed Green Beans,” and we gotta admit, they looked somewhat decent. 

“Hey, those are basic green beans. Nothing wrong with those,” one surprised fan wrote on reddit. “I have to say, she IS trying and I do give her credit for that. They look good.” A second said: “This is quite the improvement!”

Yeah, we’ll say! Pretty soon she’ll be ditching the can opener for good. As for Michelle? We’re not so sure.
