    Starrynews's Note:

    A spicy twist on mac & cheese - delicious! I found this in the Sunday paper, in a Carnation ad. We really enjoy this variation when we want an extra zip with our mac & cheese.

      This is very easy to put together-no white sauce to make! And it is easliy reduced by half, so we aren't eating leftover mac n' cheese for a week :) I left out the cayenne, but will try it next time.

      YUMMMMM! What a great mac and cheese recipe! I loved the combination of cheeses and the subtle heat from the cayenne. I was out of tortilla chips, so I didnt use them, but next time Im making this, Ill definitely add them, too.
      THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper, starry!

      I enjoyed this mac and cheese. I halved the recipe and used a cheddar/Jack cheese blend. I liked the tortilla chips in it. Thanks starrynews! Made for Vegetarian Swap-July 2011.
