Chickadoodle’s Dinner for Two #3: Absurdly Easy Chili-Mac

Okay, this is actually a dinner for two for 3 or even 4 nights, but whatever. This is the way students on a college budget survive.

For this, you need:

–2 boxes of your favorite macaroni and cheese
–2 cans of your favorite canned chili (I commonly mix two types of Nalley or Stag chili)
–1 can of your favorite beans to use with chili
–2 cups of grated cheddar cheese (optional)
–spices to taste (cayenne pepper, garlic, and red pepper flakes are common favorites) 

First, prepare the macaroni and cheese as you would normally. Keeping the pot warm on low heat, stir in the chili and the beans, as well as the spices. Stir in the cheese, melting it if desired. Actually, it will probably melt in the process, anyway; you may as well accept it.

Serve it up and eat it. I recommend having some salad to go along with it.

The whole process takes about 30-40 minutes, including re-heat time. (The non-mac ingredients, especially the cheese, will lower the temperature of the whole thing.)
