"good and easy, however to reduce sodium i did not use the tomato soup or sauce, instead i used 28 oz can of unsalted chopped tomatoes, and 1/4 cup tomato paste, boiled 11/2 cup macaroni, any more would have been too much"

"What a wonderful comfort food! My husband doesn't care for casseroles, made this when he was working out of town....ate the whole thing by myself in three days! I fixed it on Sunday, minus the cheese on top. I put it in a casserole dish, refrigerated it, then I baked it the next night at 350, covered. After about 45 minutes, I took the lid off and topped it with the cheese and baked it for another 15. Tasty!"

"Agree with others that this is a good recipe to play around with until it fits my tastes. I would probably use a can of the mild Rotel because I don't like things too spicy.I also agree with others about the problems with the magazines. I loved quick Cooking. I hated Simple and Delicious and never renewed my subscription. I don't know anyone in my family either who gets any of these magazines any more. Now I just look for easy recipes and if I find one, I pin it to Pinterest. Now there is no extra paper laying around my house ."

"Good recipe to play with and a good recipe to take to potlucks as it makes a huge casserole. To spice it up, I used a verde sauce. Will be making it again and will be adding more to it."

"Awesome recipe! I used hot rotel, and tomato sauce, bulk taco seasoning (so I can add to taste). Used boxed Mac n cheese, and added some cheddar, topped with sour cream. Big hit with the family."

"Like some of the other reviewers, I thought this needed a bit more Mexican flavor so I added some chili powder and cumin on top of the seasoning mix... Some other good additions would be corn, black olives, scallions/green onions.... Maybe even pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar... It's a good recipe to play with..."

"This makes way more than 6 servings!!! My husband and I will be eating these leftovers for a week. This was good. However, I think the recipe calls for way too much macaroni and not enough taco seasoning. I didn't have tomato soup or sauce, so I used a 6oz can of tomato paste mixed with 6 oz of water and it was just fine. Next time I make this, I will reduce the amount of macaroni and maybe use 1 and 1/2 packets of taco seasoning."
