      Really great twist on mac & cheese! The flavors were great and the nice little kick from the chipotle was great. Thanks for sharing!

      This had a deliciously smokey taste, even though I used a bacon substitute (because we are vegetarians). I used 1% milk and lowfat cheddar. I had some leftover cherry tomatoes, so I added them. The chipotle in adobo and cheddar cheese matched one another very well. At first I thought it was going to turn out too saucy but that was not the case. I added 2 teaspoons chipotle instead of just one. Thanks very much we really enjoyed this.
