During winter term, I love making different types of comforting soups and stews. They are easy, cheap and can feed you and all of your roommates while also making your house smell awesome. Recently at one of my work meetings, my manager made us all this chili and it has become one of my favorite meals to make for dinner. It will cost you under $20 dollars and can be made with very little effort, which is perfect after an exhausting day of class, work, meetings, internships and more.
