Bacon Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese

Bacon Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese: Savory Sweet and Satsifying

This macaroni and cheese was not as spicy as I was expecting, but then again chipotles in adobo sauce tend to not be as spicy as a jalapeño. It did have a nice smokey flavor to it, which we all enjoyed.

Bacon Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese
Ingredients:
4 slices turkey bacon
4 cups elbow noodles
5 cups milk
1 teaspoon pureed chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions:
Dice the bacon and then cook in a large pot, over medium high heat, until crispy. Drain all of the fat from the pot and remove half of the bacon and save.

To the pot add in the elbow noodles and milk. Bring the mixture to a simmer, over medium heat, and cook until noodles are al dente, stirring often, about 10 -15 minutes.

Add in chipotle peppers, cheese and reserved bacon, stirring until well mixed and cheese is melted.

Enjoy!!!
