One-Pot Mexican Macaroni and Cheese
An old favorite, macaroni and cheese takes on a new role with the addition of zesty jalapeños teamed with shredded Monterey Jack cheese. The pasta doesn't need draining in this one-pot recipe, which saves on dishes.
3 cups dry rotelle or wagon wheel pasta (8 ounces)
3 cups water
1 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup sliced ripe olives
1 tablespoon diced jalapeños
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- Boil pasta and water in large saucepan, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is tender and water is almost gone. Add evaporated milk, bell pepper, green onions, olives and jalapeños; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened slightly. Add cheese; stir until cheese is melted and sauce is thickened. Season with salt.
Makes 4 servings.
