What a blast from the past! My mom used to make something similar to this when I was a kid, but it didn't have the green chilies in it. I remember back then, I was craving something spicy, but my mom didn't have red pepper, so I would sprinkle liberal amounts of chili powder all over my serving. Yours was absolutely wonderful! But I have to admit to sneaking a little of the chili powder on it for a taste of the "old days", and it tasted great that way too! Thanks Diggy, for your "Back to the Future" recipe!

I thought that this dish sounded easy and super quick to make. I had all the ingredients on hand but had no idea that I would give it 5 stars! My family loved it. My daughter asked me what it was after she had eaten and when I told her how simple this was to make, she couldn't believe how delicious it was either! This is now added into our menu rotation. Thanks.

This recipe was made on 5/5/09 for the " A Taste of Yellow 2009 " event.While the meat/onion mixture was browning, some seasoned salt and garlic powder were added.I also added some cayenne pepper for a bit more of a " kick " While mixing, I did have to add about 1/3 cup more milk to get it all blended together. And before baking, about another 1/2 cup of cheese was sprinkled over the top. Baked it just a bit longer to get the added cheese a bit crispy. This was very quick and easy recipe that will be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

I added more cheddar and some cheez whiz since we are cheesy people. Child friendly for sure. Thanks Miss Diggy!

This is simple & yummy. I halved the amount of tomatoes & chilies (personal preference only).

I'm glad that I found this recipe because I had a busy day so I needed something quick and easy to make. I used the Kraft shells & cheese mix and I added some chopped green pepper. Delicious! It's spicy, but not too much for the kiddos to handle. Great use of a mac and cheese mix. Thanx for sharing this recipe, Miss Diggy. I'll make this again.

My husband really enjoyed this dish. I left out half the green chiles and added more onion and it was great!
