This was very nice and super easy. I used a 10 oz can of Rotel for the diced tomatoes and because of the extra tomatoes, I used a little more macaroni (about 2/3 c total). This was pleasantly spicy from the Rotel & chili powder combo though it did need some salt for my taste. I used extra cheese (trying to use it up) and served with some sour cream to cut the spice a little. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is great and easy. (Easy to pull together on a weekday night.) I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, only because I added salt, pepper and cumin. But it turned out really well, and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for posting! :)
