    2Bleu's Note:

    In Spain, they have the annual 'Running of the Bulls' where they let the bulls chase the townsfolk thru the streets before the bullfight. Well, in Mexico where Johnny grew up, he was chased by 8 mexicans for talking bull! (lol). Here's Johnny's adaption of a Kraft classic. Enjoy. :)

      This is one of my new favorite suppers! I just used a regular box of macaroni because I didn't have the deluxe but it was very good. (I also did not have any olives) I would recommend this to anyone!

      I just took this out of the oven and had to say that it smells so so good. I was a little unsure about it because of the mac and cheese but I think it's going to be a winner. Will update with stars and more info after super. UPDATE: This tasted as good as it smelled. We left the jalapeno's out because my two little ones were eating it and used chili with no beans for personal preference. I also used Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos because I couldn't find any taco flavored ones. The mac and cheese with the sour cream mixed in was the winning ingredient in this dish. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PAC Fall/2008.

      We liked this one. I also drained the meat and added water. I used a 15 oz can of chili, but otherwise followed the directions. I had the leftovers for lunch the next day and they were yummy too.
