Mac n' Cheese with Chorizo and Poblanos
How do you make macaroni and cheese special? Try this one for size. The spiciness of this Latin-inspired mac n' cheese may seem to make it an "adults only" version, but adventurous kids can eat it up, too. This baked mac n' cheese is the ideal recipe for any occasion. Be sure to slightly undercook the pasta to al dente, as it will bake and soften further in the oven. The cheese sauce is so creamy and so rich, while the chorizo and poblanos offer a kick, and the texture is perfected with an herbed bread crumble on top.
