Old School Hamburger Helper

Feeling less than enspired last night, I was trying to figure out something to make w/ 1/2 lb. of left over ground beef. Then I remembered "my meal." Growing up this was the "Tricia Special" because I could make it all by my self! I haven't made it in ages so I gave it a whirl and the "recipe" came back to me just like riding a bike. Here it is:

Make 1 box of cheap mac & cheese as directed. Add a couple of slices of cheese at the end and stir till melted. Then add 1 can of chili beans and 1/2 of cooked ground beef (seasoned to your liking). Heat and Serve. If you want to be fancy you can put it in a casserole and heat in the oven w/slices of cheese on top.

Quick & super easy, the way I like it!

You can also add diced onion, garlic and a little chili powder to the hamburger to give it a little "Bam"?!
