1 large 28oz can of diced tomatoes 
1/2 cup sour cream  

Original recipe said it serves 4 people but our family of 5 ate the whole updated Marksville Style batch so if you have big eaters you are going to want to double or use my recipe.

    Layer half the corn chips, the onion and half the cheese in a 9-inch pie plate  13 by 9 inch glass baking pan.  Spoon the chili over the cheese. I mixed my 3 cans of chili and large can of tomatoes together then put over cheese. Layer with the remaining corn chips and cheese.

Mac & Cheese in the Crock Pot Marksville Style

With having Fibromyalgia I was looking for a recipe that would make my life a little bit more easy , not having to spend so much time in the kitchen on my feet and moving around. Being able to provide my family with a nice meal is something I want to do, but something that doesn't get done as often because I am just in too much pain to stand there to get it all done.
I have been looking for a great Crock Pot Mac & Cheese for quite some time, and I think I came up with our own. Most other recipes left my macaroni like mush but I decided to try one more time so I took a little from here, a little from there and finally settled on the below recipe.
Mac & Cheese in the Crock Pot Marksville Style
1 lb of  elbow macaroni uncooked
8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
1 8oz block of cream cheese cut into cubes
4 cups of milk 
First spray your crock pot with non stick spray 
Add in uncooked macaroni, milk, chunks of cream cheese, then shredded cheddar cheese, give a quick stir if you like but we didn't stir ours until ready to serve and it came out well. 
I did this on low for 4 hours in my 5 quart  crock pot. We didn't add any salt and pepper but if you like you can.
Our family likes the little crispy edges which this does for us. I will update with a picture the next time I make it. It was gobbled up that fast which means it is a keeper.
