I liked it but it was a bit too spicy for me. There was a LOT of cheese and cream added to it as well and although that made it creamy like I like, it was just almost too much. I'm not big on sp...

This was super yummy. Instead of the chipotle in adobo sauce I put in a can of diced green chiles and some cayenne pepper. We will definately make this again.

This was the best mac and cheese I have ever had. Everyone in my family loved it!

I have spent years trying to find a homemade macaroni and cheese recipe that has some flavor to it. I finally found it! My husband raved about this during dinner and the next day too!

This isn't the mac and cheese you ate as a kid! Overall, very tasty, unique dish. I added extra chipotles and used all pepperjack for an extra kick.
