The salsa really adds some zip to the mac and cheese! I used a red pepper instead of a green one, but that was the only change I made. I used a medium-mild salsa since the kids aren't the biggest fans of spicy food. Our only issue was that the dish wasn't salty enough, there is no salt in the ingredients and I guess the salsa and the cheese just don't have enough to give the entire dish the flavor we needed. But we can always sprinkle some on at the table, can't we? Great idea to add the salsa! Thanks!
