Chili Mac

Cost @ $4.50

Budget & Kid Friendly!

I used paprika and cayenne pepper instead of chili powder because that’s just what I had. 😎

  • 2 boxes of Macaroni & Cheese, uncooked
  • 10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chiles (I like using Rotel)
  • 1 lb ground beef or turkey (can use additional pound of meat if you prefer)
  • 1 package reduced sodium taco seasoning
  • Chili powder (to taste)
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)

  1. Make the Mac & Cheese according to the package
  2. Cook the ground beef in a skillet – drain
  3. Add can of diced tomatoes and green chiles with the seasonings to the cooked meat
  4. Add the prepared Mac & Cheese
  5. Heat and serve
