chili mac and cheese.

This is one of Mr. Sachinky's favorite dishes. It's the easiest thing to whip up and requires only a handful of inexpensive ingredients. We usually eat it with garlic bread or a fresh salad on the side.

Step 1: Gather salt, olive oil, shell pasta (or elbow macaroni), a can of chili and a few handfuls of shredded cheese. We mostly have the Colby/Monterey Jack variety at home. And some hot sauce. Just to add some heat. We're big fans of Sriacha.

Step two: Throw pasta in boiling water with a spoon of salt and a few drizzles of olive oil. Drain water once tender.

Step Three: Open a can of chilli (we used the no-beans variety this time but beans are fine too) and pour it into a baking dish. Throw in a few dollops of Sriacha. Seriously, this shit is mad good, yo. Best stuff money -- that is, $2 -- can buy.

Step Five: Layer the pasta and mix it well with the chili.

Step Seven: Top generously with shredded cheese and pop into a pre-heated oven (375F) for about ten-minutes till the cheese begins to bubble.

Out of the oven!

Garnish with some chopped coriander if you so wish.
