    I love adding corn to my chili. It creates a nice balance between sweet and hot. I’m linking up my Baked chicken Parmesan. I save money by repurposing leftover spaghetti sauce and using homemade croutons.

    If you prefer a thicker consistency rather than a ‘soupy’ one, here’s what I did:
    Do not add the 3-4 cups of water. Eliminate that all together.
    Add 1’can tomato paste and 1/2 cup BBQ sauce. (BBQ sauce makes chili SO much better!)

    How would you make this for 5.00? Not sure but I think the ingredients would cost me more than 5.00. I could be wrong though.
