Mac N Cheese (with a little "helper!")

Rice Cooker Mac n Cheese was actually the last recipe I posted on Munching Madness.  Check out the new ending!!

First, I shredded up some cheese. 
Next, I put 3 cups macaroni and 3 cups chicken broth in the rice cooker and turned it on. 
Once it was cooked, I added in a box of frozen peas.
** Cool new addition alert **
I had some leftover Kibbeh (a Lebanese meatloaf type food made of meat and bulgur wheat) SOOOOOOooooooo I heat it up in the convection oven with LOTS of butter.  
Then, it went into the rice cooker!
The cheese that was shredded up before?  That got thrown in.  
I put the top on the rice cooker and let it all melt in.  Yumm!
It was kinda like a kick-butt version of Hamburger Helper.  At least, it is what I think Hamburger Helper is like.  I've never actually had it.
