Recipe: Mexican Mac N Cheese

This is a little twist on the usual Mac n Cheese…. it has a little bite to it… you can crunch up some Tostitos for a quick topping if you like…. A great family supper.

This was a quick supper I put together one night when I wanted Macaroni and Cheese but didn’t want the same old casserole.

If you don’t want it this spicy … use just diced tomatoes.

Variation: add 2 cups cooked chicken breasts, cubed.

Serve this with a salad... and you're all set!
