Instructions
  1. In a large skillet with a lid over medium heat, lightly brown sausage, 3-4 minutes. Drain, if necessary. Return to skillet.
  2. Add chicken, onion, green pepper, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Stir in chicken broth, diced tomatoes, half & half, and uncooked macaroni. Season with salt and hot sauce to taste.

Recipe Notes

*Substitute cooked ham or cooked shrimp for the chicken. If using shrimp, add it at the end right before the cheese just to heat through.

**Colby-jack cheese works great, too. If you like it extra spicy, try pepper-jack.
