"This macaroni and cheese is smoky, spicy, and absolutely delicious. You can adjust the spice level by adding more or less chipotles."

chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, finely chopped

Yummy! I used the three chipotles, but it may be to hot for the spicy "novice" wonderful!!!
I was very excited to make this recipe because I love the taste of adobe peppers in food. However, I was rather disappointed after making this mac and cheese. I felt like there was too much butter in it for one, and two it needed some sort of processed cheese so it didn't separate from the butter. I will not be making this recipe again unfortunately.
This was a fantastic recipe. I jazzed it up just a bit by tossing some panko bread crumbs mixed with melted butter on the top and baking it for 30 minutes until it formed a crust. The mac and cheese had the right amount of spiciness to it as well.
Completely satisfied! Fairly easy to prepare, even with a 12 month old at my feet. Super tasty and has a nice kick! I didn't change a thing on the recipe. Just used the 3 biggest peppers I could find in the jar and there was plenty of heat. Nice and moist too, not dry at all like some baked mac and cheese recipes I've tried.
This was the ultimate comfort food. My sister and I made this together and weren't sure how it would turn out but all of the flavors ended up coming together beautifully. Some things we did a little different were using large shell pasta instead of macaroni which hold more of the sauce in the pasta. We also used half milk and half heavy cream, used a can of chopped green chilies, and topped the dish off with some shredded cheese the last few minutes of baking. It turned out perfect and very delicious... I definitely recommend trying this recipe!
I will never make regular mac n cheese again!!! This was SO good. I couldn't find chipotle peppers so I roasted 1 poblano pepper and used 1.5 teaspoons of chipotle powder. I also used 1/2 smartbalance half butter blend that was handy. Amazing lavor - thank you veggiegirly!!!!
I made this for our Memorial Day family barbeque.Everyone loved it. I used 24 oz.macaroni and doubled everything else (except the flour.) I prepared it the night before.And when I took it out to warm up a little before putting it in the oven....I took a little taste and thought NO ONE will like this.But after baking it for over an hour and a half (it was a big pan) it was flavorful.
