No kidding, this will be the easiest recipe I will ever post, I think. It is so simple and so filling, how could it not be called "Comfort food?"
It's super easy to put together and easy to cook. What more could you ask for?
I have found that this has become a turn too in my family and I hope it brings good memories to my girls when they get older.
It has stayed on my "splurge" list and I shall not part ways with it. I enjoy the clash of textures and tastes very much and it's warm and filling. You think you could eat a ton of it but it's one of those dishes that proves that your eyes are indeed bigger then your stomach.
(This will feed all five of us with no left overs)
1 Box of Velveeta shells and cheese. Do not use powdered mac n cheese, wont turn out the same. Cooked and prepared as directed on box.
1 can of chili (I used turkey, you can use whatever you like)
1/4 to 1/2 block of Velveeta cheese 16 oz size cut into cubes. The amount is up to you. I kinda like mine cheesy but not.
1 box of Jiffy corn bread mix- made per directions.
1- Make the shells and cheese as directed on the box. When drained and cheese is added, stir in the chili and Velvetta cheese. Mixed until additional cheese is almost melted.
2- Make the corn bread mix as directed.
3- Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Add in the shell and cheese mixture. Top with corn bread batter and gently spread until shell and cheese is covered.
4- Bake at 350 until the corn bread is golden, set in the center and brown around the edges. Serve hot.
I never said it was healthy, I did say it was comfort food and comforting it is.
