(Homemade) Chicken & Ranch Macaroni

How ’bout we just call this what it is?!?

Crack Mac n Cheese.

Like, you’re gonna be addicted.

Consider yourself warned.

This is SO SO SO SO Delicious!

It’s a homemade cheese sauce with all the best dairy combined with Ranch to make the creamiest, tastiest cheese to toss with the mac.

Mac n Cheese.

Mac and Cheese.

Mac in Cheese.

(Because the mac mixes so beautifully in the cheese.)

Here’s the quick breakdown for ya…

  1. Cook the pasta.
  2. Make the cheese sauce in a skillet, then toss in the rotisserie chicken.
  3. Combine and add to baking dish, then top with more cheese, breadcrumbs and cheese.
  4. Did someone say cheese?!?
  5. Bake and serve!

Also, rotisserie chickens are very convenient as you can just pull off the meat and be on your way to getting dinner ready. BUT…they are more expensive that ‘making your own rotisserie chicken.’ So, here are some helpful tips for you for both of these options:

Hope you enjoy this amazing homemade mac n-and-in cheese!

Sloppy Joe Nachos

Really, Erin?

Yes….trust me!

This was one of those “happy accident meals” and I had to share this with you.

This past summer, our family spent some time at our family’s lake cabin in Minnesota. I had a crash course in “country living” and being far away from the grocery store. I had to adjust my meal planning habits a little to be better prepared for the “long drive into town.” I learned quickly that you HAD to be prepared – or you’d end up taking 2 hours out of your day to make a trip to the ‘big grocery store.’

In an attempt to avoid said trip, these nachos ended up on the table.

I found some ground beef in the freezer and a can of sloppy joe meat in the pantry. And since there was an ENDLESS supply of chips and salsa at the cabin (I’m pretty sure this was my mom’s doing and not mine!) and NO BUNS, we ended up having these for dinner and they WERE SO GOOD. We served them with mild shredded cheddar (because that’s what we had), but I think they would be better with a sharp cheddar, or a white sharp cheddar!

This is our “happy accident meal” from the summer and I hope you enjoy this fun and tasty twist on sloppy joes!

Sloppy Joe Nachos

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 10 minutes

Cooking Time – 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 15 oz. can sloppy joe sauce
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 bag tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, sharp cheddar, Monterrey Jack)
  • Garnish: sour cream
  • Side: fruit or salad

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Open the can of sloppy joe sauce.
  • In a large skillet, brown the ground beef with the minced onion and garlic powder. Drain and return to the skillet. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce and cumin. Bring to bubbling over medium low heat to allow flavors to infuse.
  • Assemble the nachos on large, rimmed baking sheet. Add chips, then sloppy joe sauce, then shredded cheese sprinkled evenly on top. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Garnish with sour cream.
  • Prepare fruit.
  • Serve Sloppy Joe Nachos with some fresh fruit or salad on the side!
