spicy cheese mac

Sharing this simple dish that could be made to fill some bellies while indulging in the much anticipated championship football games this weekend. 

2 packages shell macaroni
1 block Velveeta cheese
2 cups milk
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
2 cups spiced crumbs*
1 lb. fried bacon

Boil macaroni and drain.  Slice Velveeta cheese in chunks and add to macaroni.  Add milk and tomatoes and stir lightly. Sprinkle spicy crumb mixture on top and bake in oven for about 20 minutes, occasionally stirring.  Enhance with crunched bacon after done baking.

 *Take any leftover Dorito or spicy chip crumbs (you know, the dregs at the bottom of the bag that no one ever eats) and process them like bread crumbs. 


...and while you're praying for a Bears win, please keep my Uncle Bill in your prayers as he is undergoing chemo therapy to heal his leukemia.  He is a fantastic guy and I beg God to keep him with us for a long, long time... xo
