Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Kid friendly taco night! This recipe makes you wonder how anyone could eat that "creamy helper" out of a box. With only a few simple ingredients creamy mexi-mac was ready in a flash! I do recommend only 1T simply salsa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this twist on traditional Mac n Cheese Love this recipe. Easy and delicious. Comfort food at its best... a super crowd pleaser and even the picky eaters. A little spicy so you could cut back on simply salsa if you are serving to little ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mac and cheese, family approved! An easy and quick recipe to throw together. I only used 1 Tbsp. of Simply Salsa to keep it from being too spicy. I used sharp cheddar cheese. Will def make again!
