Mac and cheese with a twist

Cora Swindoll


Came up with this ideas when my daughter was younger. One night I was making chicken for her and did not want to just make the same old mac and cheese, so I looked thru my fridge and found some packets of taco bell sauce(They always give you way more then needed) and decided, why not give it a try. Now I make mac and cheese more this way then the old regular way.
