Quick, tasty dinner, Member TJenkins81

At first I was going to make cheeseburger Mac & Cheese, but after looking online I came across this recipe and decided to go with it. I used Velveeta Shells and Cheese, cooked my hambuerger meat with an onion and garlic, used 1 can of Southwestern Style Corn and 1 can of Rotel. We thought it was great! And very easy and quick!
