NOTE: These are NOT “healthy” meals, they are Not Weight Loss Surgery Friendly, That is why they are on my general purpose blog and not my WLS blog.
As for me I took a bowl of the chili from the Enchilada casserole and added chicken and cheese and took it to the potluck for me, there I nibbled on cheese and meat and veggies and chose a bite or two of a few desserts (pecan pie and gingerbread, I got someone to split the slices with me) and I took my own tea bags
On the other hand they are perfect casseroles for potlucks when you want something super easy and impressively yummy, they are perfect for those meals where everybody takes a small amount of everything.
2 tablespoons butter
**optional: Bacon bits, diced ham, hamburger crumbles and/or THAWED vegetables (frozen will slow the cooking),
1. Heat oven to 350°F and position oven rack in the top half of oven.
2. In a blender, purée soup and evaporated milk together.
3. put dry macaroni on the bottom of the pan and cover with milk then pour blended soup on top with the shredded cheese and stir together with any add ins
4. cover tightly with foil and bake 30 minutes.
5.Uncover pan, stir gently, bake another 30-40 minutes, until pasta has cooked and sauce has thickened.
Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
This can be served over slices of french bread as well
made this recipe up from a few other baked mac and cheese recipes on line that did not fit what I had or the desired taste I wanted
(next time I am making it with crumbled hamburger and tomato sauce instead of soup and bacon and some sauteed garlic and onions)
((((I took this to the staff party of the convention I volunteer for and it and my enchilada casserole got wiped out so fast))))
(this is one of those *use what you have* recipes so adjust it to preference and availability)
Turn oven on to 350*
Bake for 30-40 minutes uncovered
this is a huge hit as well and you can adjust the spice or meatiness of it
