Recipe follows at the end.
Heat the chili up on the stove. (The beans tend to explode in the microwave.)
Hubby's portion, and yes, I reused the plate! It saved me a dirty dish! He was busy watering our new tree out front. And yes, the dogs thought lunch smelled delicious!
I got my craving food!
And saved money by making it at home.
Frozen fries: $2.00
Canned chili: $1.38
Ragu Cheese Sauce: $1.67+.50 coupon = $1.17
(Using the Ragu instead of a jar cheese dip/sauce saved me $2.71)
(And it was just as good!)
Total Meal: $4.55
My husband finished his and asked if there were free refills.
We ate it all.
He wanted more! So, I'm glad I bought enough to make them again!
(We eat healthy a lot, but sometimes it's nice to splurge.)
