    lazyme's Note:

    I make this mac and cheese for large gatherings because it can be made 2 days in advance. Everyone loves it. I usually make half plain for the kids, and half with chipotles for the adults. Any tubular pasta will work and I often 'clean out the fridge' and add any other cheeses that I may have on hand.

      This is a delicious way to make macaroni and cheese -- loved the addition of the chipotle chile and I added a touch of additional adobo sauce. I halved this recipe and it turned out perfectly. Can't wait to bring this dish to my next potluck gathering. Made for the For Your Consideration tag game.

      This was so yummy! I cut the recipe in half, and only did the chipotle...I didn't leave any plain. I did do more chipotle then it called for too...probably close to doubled it. It was awesome. Nice and cheesy and spicy -- 2 of my favorite things in a food! Thanks for posting this super yummy comfort recipe. Made for Lazyme's Cook-A-Thon in memory of her husband Don.
