Sorry for the lack of posts. I'm studying for comps and we had a garage sale over the weekend so I have been busy! But I did have a chance to spice up some mac and cheese with the addition of some pepper jack cheese. I don't know why I didn't make this sooner! We served it with some amazing grilled steaks and I always enjoy a side of broccoli with my mac and cheese. I don't really know why, but I think they pair great together. That much cheese needs to be balanced with something light and fresh. If you like mac and cheese but want to spice it up you should try this recipe. Hopefully I'll have time to write more later in the week!
Spicy Mac and Cheese
1/2 lb of macaroni noodles
3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
1 cup pepper jack cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1) While you're macaroni noodles are cooking prepare the roux by melting the butter and flour together and let cook until browned, then add the milk and stir until thickened
2) Add in the cheese and cook until melted, you can always add more milk if it gets too thick
3) Add the cooked noodles, season with salt and pepper and enjoy!
