Michmash Macaroni

   

Ingredients:

2 cups macaroni noodles

1 shot Tequila

1 ½ t. Weber Bold Chipotle seasoning

1 15oz jar Classico Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce

1 10oz can chicken

¼ t. salt

1 ¼ cup Mexican style four cheese blend (shredded cheese)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook the macaroni noodles on stovetop to less than al dente or about half-way.  Drain the noodles and mix in the Tequila, seasoning, Alfredo sauce, salt, chicken (liquid included) and 1 cup of the cheese.  Mix thoroughly, then pour into a non-stick or ceramic baking dish approximately 10 x 8 and 2 inches deep.  Top with the remaining ¼ cup of cheese (or more if you like).  Bake until the cheese on top starts to brown, about 25 to 30 minutes.
