I actually do know someone who doesn’t like Mac and Cheese! You? I think most of us can agree that Mac and Cheese is glorious. I’ll take it from that blue box, or homemade with a creamy bechamel sauce. Loaded up with Hatch Chile? You bet. Made with Swiss Cheese, you bet. Steak House Chipotle, heavenly. But made with beer?
The only thing that could be better is Mac and Cheese made with beer.
I simply could not resist trying this Spicy Mac and Cheese. Using Modelo Especial Mexican Beer to flavor the cheese sauce is genius. It’s crisp flavor blends wonderfully with the sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. The addition of Red Chile Buttermilk Dressing kicks mac and cheese up even another notch. Absolutely delicious.
