Mexi Mac n Cheese

I love mac ‘n’ cheese.

mexi mac n cheese

Well pretty much anything with cheese and you can sign me up šŸ™‚

But unfortunately most mac ‘n’ cheese is not very diet-friendly.

We are talking butter, lots of lovely butter, add to that a ton of cheese, buttery breadcrumbs and bake it until everything is melty, gooey and ahhmazing.

Doesn’t that sound lovely?

But unfortunately just thinking about it and I went up in pants-size.

But this mac ‘n’ cheese is actually pretty light.

It’s still as fab as the full-fat version except you won’t want to run on the treadmill for an hour afterwards.

And it has a slight spicy kick that I definitely appreciate! As you might know I love anything and everything spicy šŸ™‚

Stars: 5

Level: Easy

Comments: Very flavor Mexican spin on mac n cheese! I loved it! The best part is that you cook the milk with the pasta so you have less bowls to clean šŸ˜‰

Negatives: None

Will I make it again? Yes I’ve made it a few times already.
