mac and cheese with a kick

Craig and I had a very romantic Valentine's Day dinner at home together last night. Really, there was no other place I would have wanted to be.

In other news, I made a delicious dinner the other night. It always feels good when I find a meal I can make that's easy and tastes amazing.

Mac & Cheese with a kick (adapted from here)

1 package mac and cheese (I like TJ's Joe's Diner version)
1/2 jar of chunky salsa
handful of shredded cheese

Cook macaroni and cheese according to instructions on the box...
...add this...
...and this...
...and enjoy.


  1. when i was little this is how my dad made mac & cheese. so to me, this is the ONLY way.

  2. That actually looks pretty good - and worth trying! I've always wanted to make homemade mac & cheese with the breadcrumb topping! This looks like something I could do in addition to making it homemade!

  3. TJs mac & cheese is the best thing ever! And you just improved it. Boom. Mind blown.

  4. I made mac and cheese the other day but it was way more complicated and I doubt it tasted any better than this!

  5. OMG I LOVE TJ's diner stlye mac n cheese! It's so damn good and who doesn't love salsa, genius!

  6. I generally pour half a bottle of chalula on my mac & cheese... and I love it.

  7. This looks soooo good! I can't wait to try this recipe out! Perfect for my skill level in cooking. Easy Mac, here I come!


Oh, herro there.
