DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter shallow, medium-to-large baking dish.
  • Prepare breadcrumbs, first melting butter in small skillet over medium heat. Stir in bread crumbs and toast until golden, stirring occasionally. Scrape bread crumbs out of skillet and reserve.
  • Prepare cheese sauce, first melting butter in large, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir flour into butter gradually (so it doesn’t develop lumps).When flour is incorporated, mix in onion and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add green chile and any juice; cook until heated through. Raise heat to medium-high and gradually whisk in milk, buttermilk, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil and continue to cook until lightly thickened, stirring occasionally (about 5 minutes). Stir in creamy fresh goat cheese until melted into sauce.
  • Remove sauce from heat and immediately mix in remaining cheeses, stirring until melted. Toss macaroni with cheese sauce and spoon into prepared baking dish.
  • Scatter bread crumbs over macaroni and cheese sauce. Bake about 30 minutes, until heated through and golden-brown and crunchy on top.
