Mac and Cheese is easy to make, but sometimes I like to have the frozen on hand to save some steps, good as a side dish or as a main dish, with the additions of the Salsa, Corn, extra cheese and Tortilla chips, turns plain into a special dish. good as a main dish with salad and rolls, or as a side to take to pot lucks and covered dish dinners . This recipe is from Nestles Family Recipes.
