Tex Mex Mac & Cheese April 17, 2011

Hi, kids.  Just dropping by to share a delicious twist on your standard macaroni and cheese.  This recipe was very easy and versatile since you could add any number of mexican-inspired ingredients.

Tex-Mex Mac & Cheese
Slightly adapted from recipe >>>HERE<<<

  • I used more than 1 cup dry pasta, probably about 1 1/2 – 2 cups
  • I added a chunk of butter and started with a traditional roux rather than just adding the milk right to the dry flour 
  • I used way more cheese (regular sharp cheddar) than 1/2 cup 😉

This stuff was really good… kind of like tacos meets mac & cheese.  I really liked the texture and heartiness provided by the black beans, and I would highly recommend the salsa on top for some spice.
