The other night it was my turn to cook supper, and I wanted to make something quick and easy. Ok, every Monday night is my turn due to work schedules. I found a recipe online, and I (as my Grandma used to say) doctored it up a bit. I say it is Cheatin’ because I used mac n cheese instead of cooking plain pasta. I suppose it isn’t really Cheatin’, but it sounds fun! 🙂 Go with me on this!
I am certain this is not the most healthy meal we have ever eaten, but it sure tasted good, and the leftovers warmed up nicely.
Cheatin’ Tex-Mex Chili
1 pound ground beef
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 box Kraft macaroni and cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 large handfuls of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Brown and crumble the ground beef seasoning it with the cumin and chili powder.
Meanwhile, prepare the macaroni and cheese as instructed on the box.
When the beef and mac and cheese are done, combine them with the tomatoes and black beans and cheese. Sprinkle a lil more cheese on top when serving if desired.
