About This Chili Mac Recipe
Chili mac is something I'm sorry to say I didn't invent. It’s such a simple concept, combining 2 great snacks to make an even better one! It’s like the Chili Billy (Chili on Nachos). You can mix and match whatever kind of chili and macaroni & cheese, but it's easiest just to pick up microwave versions of each. Not the healthiest, but easy to make, doesn’t require fancy kitchen tools or an oven, it’s cheap, and the ingredients won’t go bad.

  2. Simultaneously prepare Chili per directions on can, if only one pot is availble, use the microwave

This cheap and easy pasta is easy to make, fills you up, and it doesn't taste half bad either. It's great because you don't have to worry about keeping the ingredients refrigerated, they'll last for a long time just sitting in your bag or on the shelf in the hostel kitchen.
Tuna pasta is great for travelling, it pretty much never goes bad, its dirt cheap, and its easy to make. Just toss a can of any flavor tuna into a bowl of pasta and wa-la, dinner. Not the best tasting, not the worst either, a respectful meal on the road.
