We're not big fans of canned corn so it was left out when we made this, but overall it wasn't too bad. Definitely an interesting way to make macaroni, and my picky boyfriend ate two helpings. Sort of convincing when I really got into it and started cooking in a cowboy hat and my old leather riding chaps xD. It was yummy.

i tarted this up a bit: i used a can of diced tomatoes with chilies instead of sauce and paste, i added diced red and green peppers and garlic, spiced it up with some oregano, chili powder, and hot sauce, and lastly shredded some cheddar cheese over the top. pretty tasty!
