chili-mac casserole
  • 1 box jiffy corn bread mix ($0.45)
  • 2 boxes mac n cheese ($1.50)
  • 2 cans of chili ($2.00)
  • 1/4 pound of cheddar cheese ($1.25)
  • Total: $5.20
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400, make cornbread (it calls for 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk), pour batter into your biggest casserole dish (lightly greased). Mine is about 8x8/9x9 and very deep. Cook mac n cheese and chili while the cornbread is baking. Take the cornbread out, pour in the chili, then add the mac n cheese, and spread the cheddar cheese on top. Throw it back in the oven for about 10 minutes. I like to add half a can of corn to the chili, but that's me.
