This looks good! I would like to reduce the recipe size. It has been quite sometime since I have bought Velveeta. When you say "1 box", what size are you referring to? If I recall correctly, isn't there a size as large as 2 lbs...and, if so, is that the size you are using in the above recipe?

Thank you for sharing the recipe and for feedback!
