Needed a quick and easy meal for the family when I found this one. Had all the ingredients on hand and thought why not. Followed the recipe as written and it is a great everyday meal that everyone enjoyed. Will be making it again!

This is a great recipe to whip up for a weeknight meal. My 2 year old loves the mac and cheese component and I love the ease. I have made this recipe several times and never have leftovers.

Too much on the chili powder. I cut it in half, and my kids still would not touch it. But fine for me. I would make it again
