This Rotel Chickek Spaghetti is seriously yummy comfort food. Kind of like macaroni and cheese with a kick!
I try to refrain from second helpings most of the time. Otherwise having a food blog would seriously affect what the bathroom scale tells me every morning, but I just couldn’t resist a second helping of this.
The whole family loved it, and so did the extra boys that were eating dinner with us when I made it. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of processed cheese, but trust me, this is no time to be a food snob.
This makes for great leftovers too. I may or may not have had two helpings the next day for lunch.
