Step 1: Ingredients

1. Spicy bacon and FLAMIN' hot cheeto mac

- Kraft microwavable mac and cheese cup

- Already cooked microwave bacon

- Flamin hot cheetos

- Ziplock bag (optional)

2. Chili Mac & Cheese

- Kraft microwavable mac and cheese cup

- Microwavable cup of chili

- Blended shredded cheese

3. Pizza Mac & Cheese

- Kraft microwavable mac and cheese cup

- Red pasta sauce

- Shredded mozzarella cheese

- Pepperoni

Step 2: Make the Mac and Cheese

Simply make the mac and cheese following the instructions on the cup. We've literally all done this before, you can't mess it up! Unless you are my roommate who once forgot to put the water in it.... Almost burned our apartment down!

Step 3: Crush Up Some Flamin' Hot Cheetos

These next few steps are for the flaming hot cheetos and bacon mac and cheese. For the other delicious takes on mac and cheese scroll down a few steps! As for this step, grab a small handful and place in sandwhich bag to crush up. (I used a pan to help crush it up but any hard objects beat against a hard surface will do the trick).

Step 4: Cook and Tear Up Bacon

Cook the bacon per the instructions on the box. Then once the bacon is cooked, tear it up into smaller individual pieces.

Step 5: Combine and Enjoy!

Mix all of the ingredients together with an extra topping of cheeto powder on top and dig in! This mac and cheese is too good to pass up!

Step 6: Chili Mac and Cheese

After making the microwave mac and cheese, heat up the chili per the instructions on the cup. (Again super easy and no way to mess it up)

Step 7: Combine Ingredients, Add Cheese, and Dig In

Mix the mac and cheese with the chili in a bowl. Then top with blended shredded cheese! Easiest and tastiest microwave meal out there. Why didn't I know about this easy chili mac recipe my whole life??

Step 8: Pizza Mac & Cheese: Adding Red Sauce

After making your mac and cheese like before, add some red sauce on top. Around a table spoon will do if you like measurements but I just eye balled it.

Step 9: Add Mozzarella Cheese

Sprinkle on a small handful of mozzarella cheese.

Step 10: Cut Up 4 Slices of Pepperoni Into Smaller Bits

Slice the pepperoni into small little squares. This makes it a lot easier to eat with a spoon or fork (I'm a fork mac and cheese guy myself). After slicing it up, add on top of the mozzarella cheese.

Step 11: Microwave Again for 1 Minute

Toss it back in the microwave for a min to melt the cheese. It comes out looking like a pizza!

Step 12: Enjoy!
