Total Time
Prep 5 mins

I got this out of a college magazine. It's not the best if you're into taste and health. But it's fast, it's cheap, it's COLLEGE!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 package kraft easy macaroni and cheese mix
  • 1 can chili (hot if you can hang)
  • 12 cup grated cheese (your choice)
  • 12 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 small tomatoes


  1. Make Easy Mac according to directions on box.
  2. Meanwhile, saute chopped onions in whatever type of oil is available.
  3. (Keep in mind, this is for ultra-bachelors) Add desired amount of chili to mac.
  4. Stir in sauted onions and top with chopped or sliced tomatos.
  5. Serve on a paper plate with a cheap beer and a slice of bread.

My kids weren't too fond of it...But my husband and I ate it all up (sans cheap beer). Thanks for the recipe.
