Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have literally made this dish 50 times. I have literally made this dish 50 times. I always add extra sour c.r.e.a.m so that it's rich and creamy instead of dry. I tried milk, but it wasn't as good. Extra sour c.r.e.a.m will do the trick! I also reduce the cayenne pepper to 1/8th a teaspoon, otherwise it's like, "would you like some mac and cheese with that cayenne pepper?" :) A couple other tips- I sometimes mix in some frozen peas with this. You can barely taste them in it, so why not get the good nutrients out of the deal? Make sure you add plenty of cheese- you can add all kinds of cheeses in with the cheddar for different flavor profiles. Also double the R.i.t.z crackers on top. Just trust me. ;)

I generally use ******* rather than the cayenne -- and make it even more delightful by adding a good sized chunk of ***** cheese along with the sour ***** and extra cheese. And also, MORE cheese, usually Kraft Triple Cheddar. :D No one ever realizes it's out of a box. :) Oh, and if it comes out dry, you're doing something wrong! Do NOT skimp on the cheese or sour *****, do NOT overbake! Maybe your dish is too large?

I generally use hot sauce rather than the cayenne -- and make it even more delightful by adding a good sized chunk of creem cheese along with the sour ***** and extra cheese. And also, MORE cheese, usually Kraft Triple Cheddar. :D No one ever realizes it's out of a box. :) I never realized this page CENSORS ingredients made by other companies. Boo hiss. Will not bother with suggestions in future!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This was just okay. This was just okay. I usually add cream cheese to my mac & cheese, so I liked the addition of sour cream, it was different. But even though I like things hot, I'm not sure the cayenne really improved it much. I have to agree with earlier reviews, it was too much work for not living up to the hype (and incidentally was a little dry). I'd rather just make mac & cheese as usual.

You might want to try adding 1/2 to 3/4 cup of half & half or heavy ***** (along with the sour *****), for moistness. And instead of cracker crumbs, make 1/4 cup of your own bread crumbs mixed with 1 T. of melted butter plus a pinch of onion salt or garlic salt.

When I lost the recipe, Kraft was kind enough to search and send. Thanks Kraft! My grown daughters will be adding the recipe to their repertoire, in memory of their Father.
