Add the cheeses and simmer the sauce for 20 minutes or until all cheese is melted.

Taste for flavor, and add more seasonings if you need.
Mash 1 avocado and then add it to the cheese sauce.
Boil water and add the pasta.

For the barbeque chicken sandwiches all you need to do is cook 3 peices of boneless chicken breasts in either a pressure cooker ( for 10 minutes ) or crock pot ( for 5-6 hours ) with your favorite bbq sauce. One the chicken is cooked, remove from the pot and shred with two forks. You can serve the bbq chicken on a toasted onion bun..
