Soooo yummy! I couldn't resist adding some green onion and bacon. I'm not sure it would have fit in my 2 qt casserole pan...I just baked it in the 5 qt pot that I boiled the pasta in. Next time I will add more chipotle since we like things spicy. A great recipe to tweak and play around with! Thank you!

Really good mac and cheese!I doubled the chipotle peppers and added bacon and some spices. Everyone loved it...I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

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. The chipotle will be doubled the next time. I was cautious because my husband cannot tolerate spice like I can. Delicious!!!!!!!
