Directions

  1. Fill a large 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray, and place the macaroni into the bottom of the dish. Heat milk in a saucepan until hot but not boiling.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan, and cook and stir the onion, garlic, and chipotle chiles until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Whisk in flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, and let cook for about 3 minutes, whisking constantly to avoid burning. Whisk in the hot milk, 1/2 cup at a time, and stir in paprika, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer (do not boil), whisking constantly until thickened, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the cheeses, about 1/2 cup at a time, and stir until the cheeses have melted and the sauce is thick and smooth.
  5. Pour the sauce over the macaroni in the baking dish, and stir gently to combine. Cover the dish with foil.
  6. Bake covered until the dish is bubbling and the macaroni has absorbed some of the sauce, about 40 minutes. Uncover, and bake until golden brown on the edges, 10 to 15 more minutes.

Yummy! I used the three chipotles, but it may be to hot for the spicy "novice" wonderful!!!

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.
