Thought this was a nice recipe. As others have said, I think bacon could be a nice addition, but wasn't really necessary. If you don't like spicy, you could easily cut down on the chipotle and it would still be very good. Thanks!
Really good! I agree with the other reviewers...bacon would be awesome. Unfortunately, I didn't have any "real" bacon, so I added some bacon bits and diced ham, which worked fine (but not as good as the real deal, of course). I also decided to seed one of the chipotles and I'm SOOOO glad I did! It was still very spicy. Don't get me wrong...this girl can handle some spice (AZ native)...but I think this particular dish would be better with less of it. Next time, I'll seed both chipotles, so I still get the nice smokey flavor. I like that this is creamy comfort food, incorporates ingredients I always keep on hand, and includes some veggies. I'll definitely make this again.
This mac and cheese recipe was really nice. I made it last night for dinner for DH, my aunt, and myself. My aunt loved it, DH and I liked it. It was easy to prepare and had a nice spicy flavor. Like Linaj, I might add a little extra adobo sauce next time. I also agree that stirring in some bacon might give it the little extra bit of flavor that it needed. This was a good recipe for a chilly night. Thanks, Jelisa!
WOW! We really enjoyed this recipe! I will say, it's the best mac & cheese I've ever made. I did add little extra adobo. Perfect for us. Next time, I think I might stir in bacon. Diced ham would be a good mixed in also. This is a keeper for sure. Thanks! :)
I have the original CL recipe, and I made this the other night. To Sackville Girl and Jelisa, in step 7, you are supposed to cook the onion and flour for 30 SECONDS, not minutes. I seeded the chipotle, so it was not too spicy. Oh, by the way, I forgot to add the egg and it turned out fine. My husband and company said it was a keeper.
This was a good "comfort food" recipe. If you have to feed a hungry crowd, I have a feeling this recipe would go down well. I just had a couple concerns with the recipe. It says to cook the onions for 30 minutes but there's no way I could have cooked mine for that long without burning so I added the tomatoes much more quickly. I also found there wasn't quite enough pasta for sauce and next time I'd add at least another 1/2 cup uncooked macaroni.
