  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I love this meal, it's fast and tastes great. You can make your own macaroni and cheese from scratch if preferred, I just didn't have time and most families have Mac and cheese in the cupboard!

    Step 2

    Get water boiling! Your meal will damn near be done when you get done cooking the pasta!

    Step 3

    Get meat browning! Again I used turkey!

    Step 4

    After brown I added all the veg and spices

    Step 5

    Rinse the beans, this remove almost all of the sodium from the preserving liquid!

    Step 6

    Add those to the mix!

    Step 7

    Cooking Mac and cheese like the box says!

    Step 8

    I also had a small block of manchego so I grated that into it as well!

    Step 9

    Damn looks good right?

    Step 10

    Add everything together!

    Step 11

    BAM and serve it up and watch it devoured! Check out my other guides and my Facebook page please! The love of culinary creations
