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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

i took it a lazy step further and use extreme cheese easy-mac. just microwave the easy-mac while you heat up the chili on the stove top and you're eating in five minutes!! hit it with some cholula hot sauce and it's on point Read More
