Spaghettios Chicken Chili

"cheap and easy chili for people on a budget, and kids will also enjoy the SpaghettOs! I modified it from a cookbook that is actually geared toward men (but I borrowed it from the bf). Also very high in protein!"

I am a college student who loves nothing more than to cook but is too much of a wimp for culinary school! I love to try and substitute healthier ingredients in recipes, so that I don't fatten my boyfriend and me up after we have lost a ton of weight! Fat-free sour cream does taste good! I work at a nursing home full-time in order to support myself, and in my spare time I like to go to local rock shows, listen to all kinds of music, hang with my boyfriend (guitarist), and I am a movie freak! O yeah, I also love to cook! I have lived in a couple different states (New Jersey, Maryland and Florida) and I love all of them and the different type of culinary cultures in them. Especially trying to find good Italian food outside of NJ is hard (I'm Italian)! Some of my favorite restaurants are: Papa Joe's (Mexican) - Westminster, MD Baugher's (American Comfort) - Westminster, MD Paradiso's (Italian) - Westminster, MD Liberatore's (Italian) - Westminster, MD Kyoto (Japanese) - Eldersburg, MD 3rd Street Diner (Greek/Diner) - Jax, FL Osaka (Japanese/Chinese) - Mandarin, FL Iccara's (Italian) - Hamilton, NJ Delorenzo's (Traditional Italian Pizza) - Trenton, NJ Mastoris Diner (Diner Food) - Bordentown, NJ Bagels & Beyond - Hamilton, NJ Villa Manino's (Italian) - Bordentown, NJ Hogback Deli (Hoagies) - Groveville, NJ I could go on to list many more Italian restaurants in NJ, but it would take up too much space!
