    KPD's Note:

    This is my take on a southwestern mac and cheese made with Monterrey jack! If you were pressed for time, you could just omit the crushed tortilla chips and mix the cheese in with the pasta and serve without baking! I think this dish would also be great with cooked chicken or ground beef! Enjoy!

      The flavor of this was exactly what I was looking for, it just wasn't as creamy as I had hoped it would be. I will probably add about 1 cup of a plain white sauce to this to get the consistency I want. We didn't add the green chiles as I didn't have any on hand, and we made a Ritz cracker topping instead of the chips, and it was great! I served this with some sauteed chicken breasts (seasoned with salt and pepper and sauteed in a little olive oil) and some peas. It was delicious! Thanks for posting this recipe!
