    Wow!! This is seriously some kind of delicious! One of the few meals I've made that my entire family eats with equal enthusiasm. Everyone from my 18 month old all the way up to my grandparents ask for seconds (and thirds). When I make it, I do substitute a few things just to speed up the preparation a bit: one can of green chiles for the poblano peppers, 8 oz. of hot Jimmy Dean sausage for the chorizo, and plain old frozen corn instead of grilled. I have also added leftover grilled chicken with great success. I also cook it in a 9x13" casserole dish. Don't wait, make this mac 'n cheese tonight - you won't regret it!!

    Delightful. My husband & I both loved this. I used whole grain pasta & added a little extra chorizo to the top of his :)

    Made this when my sister was visiting from Texas, we absolutley loved it. I made no substitutions except for using a larger casserole dish and baking a little longer maybe 25 minutes. Served with tossed salad.
