Hey Usafireandrescue, I am not fond of beef... can i use chicken or mutton instead of that?

Hi healthyeating! How are you? Sadly, I've never tried chicken or mutton with this particular recipe. However, I have used ground turkey in it and it turned out great. I substitute turkey a lot for beef and have found that most recipes turn out just as good, if not better with turkey. Chicken is a good idea... I might have to try that next time and see how it does. Thank you so much for watching! I hope you have a beautiful, happy and safe weekend! :-) Hugs...

Hi foodpsychologist! I hope all is well! How have you been? Beefy Mac is so easy to make. I've never experimented with other sauces. I have added hot sauce to this though to give it a kick. I tend to like things on the spicy side, LOL. If you experiment with a different sauce, let me know... I love trying new things! Hope you have a beautiful weekend! Hugs to you and yours!
