  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart casserole dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
  3. Stir soup, evaporated milk, Colby cheese, and chipotle chile into the cooked pasta until well combined. Spoon mixture into the prepared casserole dish.
  4. Stir together panko bread crumbs and olive oil in a small bowl. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture over the top of casserole.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is browned and the casserole is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.

Very easy and quick to make, and with the Chipotle peppers it's not bland at all. The second time I made it, I just doubled everything but the macaroni because it wasn't cheesy enough, half mild...

As I was saying before, I did not have the cheese soup so I used shredded Parmesan and cheddar in the sauce with whole milk. All I can say is this recipe is better than I have ever made before....

I followed the recipe and added an extra chipolte pepper. Delicious!!

I hate to be one of those people that says "I love it, but I made it differently," but that's what I'm going to do. I didn't have adobo sauce (a shame because I love spicy food), and I used a di...

01-17-16 ~ Very, very good. I made as written and we really enjoyed it. Next time I will double the chipotle peppers as we like more heat than this offered. Great recipe that I will make agai...
