    NIN4NIN's Note:

    This recipe came from what my mom referred to as the 'spice' cookbook. I grew up with it and am happy to share it. It's pretty simple to make. Make a roux, add to pasta. It is a favorite at potlucks but can be altered for smaller groups. You can make it as spicy as you like. I usually make a SPICY half and a not so spicy half.

      Excellent macaroni! The spicy Monterey was a great change to a traditional comfort food for me. I cut the recipe in half, and used regular paprika in lieu of the sweet. I'll definitely be making this again! Made for PAC Spring '08

      I have tried several macaroni recipes on Zaar & this one is by far the best. Creamy, Cheesy, Delicious, what more can I say.... Adopted from the orphanage at PAC 2008.

      Reviewed for PAC Spring 2008. I liked the extra spicy kick of this mac and cheese recipe. The pan was almost not big enough :D
