A simple mac and cheese with a twist. With the addition of Mexican queso, this mac and cheese will have you questioning the classic.
Make the queso by adding the Velveeta, ground beef, and Rotel into a medium-sized, microwaveable safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and cook in the microwave for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted.
Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Butter a large casserole dish.
Place the cooked pasta inside a large mixing bowl. Add the queso, and stir to incorporate all of the cheese.
Pour into your casserole dish and top with the tortilla chips.
Place in the preheated oven, uncovered for 25-30 minutes.
When you are ready to serve, garnish with some red and green onion and dig in.
This is not only a great way to use up your leftovers, including the tortilla chips that your kids decide not to finish, but it is also truly a great new take on a classic mac and cheese. Hope you enjoy.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
