Mini Chorizo Macaroni and Cheese Cups 3 - TM2S

Now that the Big Soccer Games are here, soccer celebrations are a must. After all, who else understands your love of the game and your support of your home team better than family and friends. That means that you’ll need big game recipes, especially ones that are quick and easy appetizers.

I recently attended the Summer Soccer Grilling Event at Walmart where we got to visit multiple booths and try various products.

The kiddos even got to play some games…

I was going to buy Kraft Macaroni & Cheese for a game day appetizer recipe (as seen pictured above) while being at Walmart

but while I was at the Kraft booth, I scored 2 boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

When I got home, I put them to good use because Macaroni & Cheese is something that the whole family can enjoy. But what if we gave it some Latino flair and added Mexican Chorizo? You’d get a delicious dish you wouldn’t want to share but just had to.

Whether you’re hosting a soccer celebration or attending one, check out this Mini Chorizo Macaroni and Cheese Cups Recipe that is both simple and cost effective to make. Oh, and delicious!

Not only does my love drinking them, but my kiddos also like looking at the juice through its new clear bottom. Capri Sun and KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese work together as the perfect pair to celebrate the soccer games.
