Throw Together Chili Recipe with Farmer's Pantry Cornbread Crisps

Throw Together Chili with Farmer's Pantry Cornbread Crisps

It is May.... my furnace is still kicking on in the mornings and again throughout the evening! One day last week I felt that a pot of chili was in order, but I was ill prepared to make it. I had very limited ingredients. I didn't let that stop me and I made a quick pot of Throw Together Chili. This was an economical and delicious dinner- and it was easy! Best of all, this made 2 dinners!

My Throw Together Chili cost $8.30 for 2 dinners and took really only a few minutes of effort.

I used about 1/2 pound of lean ground beef; this cost $2.25
4 cans of tomato soup $3.36 {4 cans at .79}
I had about 1/2 an onion in the freezer- I always freeze the veggies I can't use immediately for dishes like this. {FREE}
I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of chili powder {all I had... ill prepared as I mentioned} and 1 teaspoon of ground red pepper { a few cents... not worth calculating!}
I offered cheese to top the chili with 4 ounces was about .89
Instead of crackers we used Farmers Pantry Jalapeno Cornbread Crisps $2 for a 2-ounce bag

total of $8.30
cost per meal $4.15 {4 servings}

I served cantaloupe on the side with the Throw Together Chili with both meals. Cantaloupe was on sale for $1.29 a melon- which added about 65 cents  to the total of each meal.  You can't beat a meal for a family of 4 that tastes amazing for under $5!!

Before we get to the recipe for Throw Together Chili let me tell you a little more about Farmer's Pantry Cornbread Crisps.

Farmer’s Pantry Cornbread Crisps, available in Original and Jalapeno flavors, are a crispy, savory snack that tastes as mouth-wateringly delicious as the first bite of a slice of corn bread or corn muffin. Made from fresh corn and other whole grains grown on American farms, these crisps are sure to appeal to discriminating snackers across the country.
