King Ranch Mac and Cheese Recipe- best dish ever! Pasta, chicken, chicken soup, sour cream, Velveeta, cheddar and Rotel – so addictive! He asked me to make it again, twice, while we were still eating it!
This recipe is from the January 2012 Southern Living magazine. I made a note to try this back in January, and I am kicking myself for waiting so long. This was SO DANG GOOD! I mean really, really, really good. I want to eat this every day! This makes enough for about 6 people. We ate it for dinner and I ate leftovers for lunch. It was just as good reheated. I could eat this every week. I can’t stop thinking about it! Make this ASAP; I promise you will love it!
