Here's another two-package recipe discovered by single-package me. All you need is one box of this, one can of that, one pan of boiling water, and a few handy kitchen tools every slob should have. It almost cooks itself!
Step 1: Cook some elbow noodles in a pan of boiling water. It helps to take them out of the box first.
Step 2: Drain the cooked noodles and return them to the pan over low heat.
Step 3: Cut open the airtight pouch of cheese sauce that you found in the box with the noodles. Squeeze the contents over the noodles. This part can be very satisfying.
Step 4: Open up a can of "chili without beans" and stir the contents into the mac and cheese. Hey, you're done!
Share the results with a friend or two, or be prepared to store leftovers in the fridge. With a minute or so in the microwave they'll be good for dinner tomorrow. Oh, yes! Remember to turn off the stove. And try not to spill too much chili-mac in your eagerness to scarf it. It may leave unsightly stains.
