Winter break is a glorious time for college students all across America. It’s a time filled with family bonding, BFF reunions, holiday cheer, marathon rounds of Netflix, copious amounts of eating, and much-needed relaxation. And let me just place an especially heavy emphasis on the “copious amounts of eating” part.
But, amazing as it is, we must remember that break is fleeting. And therefore, it should be appreciated and utilized to its full capacity. So after it ends and you’re forced to return to the world of dining hall mystery meat and ramen galore, take full advantage of your dorm kitchen and make these comfort foods that have a college twist.
Whether you use the regular, limon, jalapeño, or any other flavor of Cheetos, you’re bound to find that one perfect flavor to use with this recipe.
Next time you need a quick snack or are feeling innovative after a night out, just throw in some pre-made queso with your mac ‘n cheese and you’ve got yourself an original work of art.
