(Last Updated On: August 9, 2019)

Chipotle Mac-n-Cheese is a fun twist on a family favorite. The smokiness of the chipotle, chilies, and tomatoes is a perfect compliment to cheesy goodness.

If your family loves mac-n-cheese, then this is a recipe you must try.  I will admit, this is actually the first time I have ever handmade mac-n-cheese, you know – without “powder cheese” and a box.  The chilies and tomatoes add a bit of spice, and the secret ingredient, Nasoya Chipotle TofuBaked, adds smokiness and protein.  The Chipotle TofuBaked is already pre-seasoned, so all you have to do is dice it up!  All the flavor you need is already baked in.

  1. This is so easy and great! I’m always looking for easy Mac & Cheese recipes cos my son lives for it! Lol, I may omit the green chiles cos anything with a hint of spice and he backs away, unless it’s guacamole. Go figure. I’ll definitely test this out though and I love the spiral noodles you choose. Those are my favorites.
