CHIPOLTE CHEDDAR MACARONI & CHEESE ala TAMY

CHIPOLTE CHEDDAR MACARONI & CHEESE ala TAMY

I originally thought this was going to be just another mac and cheese recipe and maybe if I had followed the recipe it would have been, but instead I “doctored” the recipe to fit hubby’s taste and what I had on hand. The results according to hubby were phenomenal, but requests I make it again so he can tell for sure.
