Poppin' Mac and Cheese plus free Popchips!


This recipe is super easy and super cheesey. I love a little crunch on my mac and cheese, so when I got some free bags of the new Popchips flavors, I knew I had to try this. You can make your own version of mac and cheese instead of using the Fiber Gourmet. However, I will say that folks who tried my Fiber Gourmet version couldn't tell the difference between it and the higher calorie stuff. I personally felt it was a little less cheesey, which is why the Cheddar Popchips were a perfect addition!

1 eight ounce bag of NEW Cheddar Popchips
1 box of Fiber Gourmet Macaroni and Cheese
1/2 cup fat free milk

Make macaroni and cheese according to package instructions (mine called for the milk). Pour into casserole dish and top with crumbled Cheddar Popchips. Bake for a couple minutes at 350 (or broil depending on your patience) until chips start to brown. Remove from oven and serve!

Disclaimer:

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
