Viva La Mexican Mac and Cheese

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. pasta spirals
  • 8 oz. Mexican Velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 small red bell pepper, chopped
    Ad
  • 1 4 oz. can chopped green chiles, drained

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook pasta spirals per package instructions in large pot until al dente. Drain. In a medium saucepan, slightly heat milk over medium heat. Add cheeses and stir until completely melted. Return drained pasta spirals to large pot, add cheese sauce mixture; stir until evenly mixed. Add bell pepper and green chilies, stir until evenly mixed. Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Source: I like to have mac and cheese now and then but it's so boring. :-( Since I love Mexican Velveeta (the hotter flavor the better) and green chiles, I thought I would spice it up a bit and give it a touch of color with the red bell peppers.
