macaroni and cheese mix
1 (14 ounce) can
hot dog chili
shredded Cheddar cheese, or cheese of choice
I made a super cheap version of this. I used the store brand mac n cheese, and chili spiced beans. The meal was $0.92. Not including the milk which I already had. I didn't use butter because I like my mac and cheese with out. Really good. It was better than the hamburger helper chili mac, and cheaper. Will make again.
Wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst is all I can say about this recipe. I had high hopes, but the family said all it tasted like was I'd chucked some chili into kd...they've all said don't make it again :(
i made this with campbell chunky firehouse chili and kraft mac and cheese. an amazingly delicious and quick meal, will definitely make again! thanks!
This is unexpectedly good! I now keep the ingredients on hand for "emergency meals."
I was short on time and wanted to make my kids something so I found this. They love it and so do I! Super easy and super quick. Hearty enough to be dinner. I used Hormel no bean chili, shredded cheddar and Kraft mac n cheese. Yum!!
This is a great meal when you want something quick, easy, and inexpensive. I use Hormel vegetarian chili.
Very interesting, easy and cheap meal!
I like to add only 1/4 to 1/2 can of chili because it allows more of the cheese flavour to come through rather than just chili with macaroni. Nice variation on two classic meals!
As a college student, I fully appreciate quick and inexpensive meals. This one is a winner because it combines chili and mac and cheese, two items I always have on hand. Like another reviewer, I too used Campbell Chunky Firehouse chili, since I love spicy chili, and for the shredded cheese topping, I used a Mexican blend. Good stuff, thanks!
