Tips and Tidbits

Turn this into a chili mac and cheese casserole by adding 2 tablespoons chili powder and a few dashes of hot sauce to the cream cheese and soup mixture, then proceed with the rest of the recipe.

Add any leftover vegetables you have to make this a truly memorable meal – canned or frozen string beans hold up well to the baking and add some color.

In fact, you could use leftover meat or a rotisserie chicken from the grocery. This would be an ideal recipe to use after Thanksgiving using leftover turkey and whatever veggies are leftover too!

I’ve never tried other meats but it seems to me that most any leftover cut of meat should work just fine. It all just depends on your family’s tastes.
