Yes. Using a combination of GarageBand and iTunes, you can record from your line input or built-in mic and end up with an MP3.

There is also a free open-source program called Audacity that can perform the same function with a couple less steps.

Garage Band will let you export to iTunes in AIFF format (File -> Export to iTunes) and then from iTunes you can convert it to an MP3 or AAC or WAV, etc. Just go to the Preferences in iTunes then select Importing the choose MP3 encoder. Now that you have it selected, "Convert Selection to MP3" will be available in the Advanced menu.
