Tex-Mex Chicken Mac and Cheese

Ask a child what the most perfect food on earth is, and chances are, the answer will be (boxed) macaroni and cheese. Without any meat or vegetables, though, parents might see this kid-friendly staple as slightly less than nutritional perfection. That's where Miss In the Kitchen steps in with organic macaroni that's been "doctored up" with some add-ins everyone in the family will enjoy!
