    Spicy Mac & Beef

    Looks good, but.... at 1118 mg sodium per serving? Any ideas on how to cut the sodium? I would appreciate a section on low sodium recipes. Thank you.

    Thank you for your feedback. You can lower the sodium in this recipe by substituting 1 1/3 cups Swanson 50% reduced sodium beef broth for the condensed beef broth in the recipe, and use our Healthy Request Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup instead of our regular Condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup. You can then taste the dish, and adjust the salt and seasonings as needed to suit your personal tastes. We hope you will give it a try!

    Delicious

    I've been making this for years. Very easy, quick, but tastes great. I like the idea of adding black or kidney beans.

    Tasty and easy

    We Loved It! Did not change a thing. My husband and I like our food a little spicy, so I used the Medium Pace Picante sauce. Did not change a thing. Quick, easy, and tasty.
