Spicy Mac N Cheese

I make this recipe every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas and it is always a hit.  Its creamy, spicy, and delicious.  Really easy to make and I usually only have to go to the store for pepper jack cheese.
  • 1/2 pound elbow macaroni
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 cups grated pepper jack cheese
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 can green chilies
  • paprika
Directions:  Boil macaroni in large pot until cooked.  In saucepan melt butter over medium heat and stir in flour.  Let sit for a minute and add all of cold milk stirring with a whisk.  Season with pepper, cayenne, and add chilies.  Add cheese sauce to drained macaroni and stir together in large pot.  Add to baking dish and top with cheddar cheese and add paprika for color.  Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted.
Cookers Note:  You can also microwave to melt the cheese however I like it a little crisp.
