Rotel Macaroni and Cheese

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Photo Momma

This dish is so simple, yet so delicious. I've been making this for years, and never get tired of it. Usually this is served as a side dish, but I've eaten it as the main course before too! You can use ONE can of original Rotel if you want. 2 cans of original make it SUPER hot. Go for it if you're brave! ;-)

Nice way to wake up the Mac and cheese, aldente large elbows, didn't have on hand Rotel but I had a can of Mexican stewed tomatoes, added the mushroom soup, sour cream, used Velveeta queso cheese and shredded sharp cheddar, at the end of that wonderful concoction and the melt goodness I diced a fresh jalapeño and stirred it in, goodness!
