I dubbed April the Queen of Cheap Cooking a long time ago. Her grocery budget puts mine to shame, and I have no idea how she does it. This recipe is one that she gave me, and it proves that cheap doesn't have to equal tasteless. It's so yummy and easy. She gave me this recipe one day when I was telling her how I was on the lookout for new meatless meal ideas, and this one is perfect! And the leftovers are just as good, which is always a huge bonus for me.
One quick word about the shredded potatoes. If you can find some with onions and peppers already in there, use those. This recipe will still taste really yummy with plain shredded potatoes, but the ones with the onions and peppers really gives it something extra and makes it even more yummy.
3 cups frozen shredded potatoes
4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
14 ounces tomato sauce
1/4 cup chili powder
1/2 cup water
Combine potatoes and half of cheese in a large bowl. Set aside.
