Mexi Macaroni & Cheese is the ultimate comfort meal.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday! I have to say, I’m sad it’s over. I look forward to it every year, then it seems like it comes and goes so fast. I know though in the blink of an eye next year will be here. The years just fly by!
In the meantime today is about an easy meal. This literally takes just under 20-25 minutes to prepare and it’s a crowd pleaser, or it is at my house!
Is this not beautiful? I absolutely love macaroni and cheese, as does the rest of my family. Although many foods I make my kids turn their noses up at, if it involves macaroni and cheese, they are all in!
This is an easy, simple meal that combines pasta, cheese, chicken, and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. This can actually be made meatless, but I decided to make it a one dish meal and add in the grilled chicken.
I ate on this for days, although it does taste best hot off the stove. It can also be paired nicely with a salad too.
Are you ready for dinner tonight? This takes just a few short minutes and dinner is served!
