Official Contest Entry: Simply Potatoes 5Fix. This is a tasty and nutritious way to kick macaroni and cheese up a notch. I love to feel my food on the tongue so I tend to use cayenne pepper quite a lot and broccoli is just a great veggie. Rotisserie chickens are pre-seasoned making it a great addition to any dish. Put these together and you have a dish everyone's going to love.
