Chili Cornbread Bake

.4 pounds extra lean (96/4) ground beef: at 3.99 a pound: $1.60
1 package of chili seasoning mix: $1.25 (Far too expensive, but I'm lazy. Next time I'll use my own spices)
Chili Beans: $.63
Corn muffin mix: $.48
1 can of tomato sauce that I bought in bulk from Sams a long time ago: $.50 ? Who knows.
4 oz shredded cheddar cheese (1/2 a package at 3/$5) $.83
1/3 cup of 1% milk: $.10
1 egg: $.12 (?)

Total: $6.01 after taxes.

Basically, prepare the chili according to package instructions, reserving some of the tomato sauce because it'll be too thin otherwise. Then put it in a corningware dish, put some cheese on top. Prepare the cornbread according to package instructions, and pour over the chili. Then sprinkle on some more cheese. Then bake at 375 until done. It's quite good. To make it healthier: (1) reduce or cut out the cheese entirely, (2) make it meatless, (3) use egg beaters, (4) and/or use skim milk.
