Mac and Cheese Soup

Mac and Cheese Soup

Luv2Cook

"A soup version of macaroni and cheese. Feel free to use the spices and flavorings that suit your family. We like peppery and warm seasonings, hence the chili pepper. This is a basic canvas that you can make all your own."

  • Ready In

  1. Place the chopped bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve 1 teaspoon of the bacon drippings.
  2. Fill a pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  3. Heat reserved bacon drippings in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes; stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic is softened, about 2 more minutes. Mix in bacon bits, chicken broth, cheese sauce, chicken bouillon granules, ground red chili pepper, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and cooked macaroni. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until the flavors have blended, about 5 minutes.

I was so excited to try this! I found it to be way too salty. The chicken bouillon I believe put it over the top. I will try this again but lessen the amount of bouillon if not omit it all toget...

My 12-year-old daughter and I made this together. We really liked it, though we did make some changes. We didn't have jar cheese sauce so we made "Glen's Cheese Sauce." I think I would always us...
