I usually prefer mac n cheese recipes with cheddar cheese but this one changed my mind. I know cheddar was in the recipe, but omit it and it'll taste so much better!
I just so happened to have mozzarella and monterey jack cheese in the fridge so I thought I'd make some mac n cheese. I normally don't used roux's but thought I could manage this one time.
For the milk, I would suggest eyeballing until the roux gets to your satisfaction. If it gets too thin, add more flour.
Also try eyeballing the cheese to your satisfaction. I noticed that Lucerne & Kraft cheeses (with cream-cheese added to it) works best.
To the cayenne pepper, I added a ton of red pepper flakes and about 1 tablespoon of cayenne (pepper doesn't bother my family) as well as some freshly ground black pepper.
To the cheese mix, I also added sour cream for extra creaminess.
Oh and add parmesan! It gives a nice extra kick of flavor.
I will definitely double this recipe next time, it was finished within the day.
