Thad’s Quick-Fix Mac and Cheese

In my book, Taming Thad, Thad has had a hard past with addiction, but has managed to stay clean for years and get on the right track. When things don’t go as well as planned in the kitchen with Zoe and his inventions one day, he takes matters into his own hands and makes a quick, easy dinner for them. I actually love this as it tastes delicious. Thad, tell us your quick and easy recipe please.

 

Thad: I sure will, Elizabeth. Having been a bachelor for quite some time, I was in to quick, easy meals. This one can really be made with whatever ingredients you have in the fridge, but I love adding the chorizo for flavor.

Thad’s Quick-Fix Mac and Cheese:

1 14 oz package of extra creamy mac and cheese (prepare according to directions)

In the meantime, brown 8 oz of chorizo in a pan (drain on paper towel to remove excess grease)

In a pan with a little water, simmer these chopped ingredients until they are soft:

3 mini colored sweet peppers

2 green onions with the tops

Add a pinch of black pepper and ground cumin for even more flavor

Mix the mac and cheese with all the ingredients and serve topped off with quartered patio tomatoes or a side of garlic toast

This is super simple and tastes great! – Thad
