Author's Notes

Always use a block of cheese and grate it yourself for best results.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Cook Elbow Macaroni (1 lb) according to instructions, strain, and set aside.
step 2
Make a roux by whisking together Butter (1/4 cup) and All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup) over low heat in a Dutch Oven.
step 3
Add Milk (1 cup), Half and Half (1/2 cup), Chili Powder (1 tsp), Onion Powder (1/2 tsp), Ground Nutmeg (1/4 tsp), and about 2/3 of your shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese (2 cups) and Monterey Jack Cheese (1 1/2 cups). Whisk over low heat until smooth.
step 4
Add cooked macaroni and mix until coated evenly with cheese sauce. Add more half & half if needed. It should be pretty loose and easy to stir. Taste and add Salt (to taste) or Ground Black Pepper (to taste) if needed.
step 5
Remove from heat and stir in the rest of your cheese. Garnish with Fresh Parsley (1 handful) for some freshness and enjoy!
