  • 1 (7 1/4 oz) box kraft macaroni and cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 -5 tbsp salsa (*see note )


  1. Prepare the mac'n cheese according to package directions.
  2. Just before serving, (and while still hot) stir in the salsa.
  3. *Note: Whenever I make this recipe adding salsa that's has more heat to it, (like my husbands homemade 'hot' salsa) I only add 4 tablespoons to the mac 'n cheese, but if I use a store bought brand that's not so hot, and is a medium-heat tasting salsa, then I'll add 5 tablespoons of the salsa.
