Monday Munchies: Mac & Cheese & Cheetos

Let me preface this by saying that I never promised these recipes would be healthy. This is a holdover from my high school/college days. I rarely eat it now, because my body protests if I over indulge, but I still love it.

In high school, it was common to have the lunch lady ladle nacho cheese into a bag of hot cheetos. That combination was heavenly. But getting perfectly melted nacho cheese at home can be difficult, so I experimented, and eventually settled on mac & cheese & cheetos. I have no idea how this would taste with regular cheetos, but you’re welcome to experiment if you aren’t a fan of spicy food.

As a side note, the photo shows standard Kraft mac & cheese, because they were out of the shell version, which, in my opinion, is much better. So follow the recipe, not the photo.

  • 1 tbsp + 2¼ tsp Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Mix
  • 7oz container, or larger, with lid
