Spicy Baked Macaroni & Cheese

This has been a stand-by side dish since we’ve been in Texas. I had never heard of Ro-Tel before meeting my husband and it’s now a staple in our pantry. I guess it’s a southern thing. In any case, it makes a good quick & easy mac & cheese.

Spicy Baked Macaroni & Cheese

3 cups uncooked elbow macaroni

1/2 cup margarine

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

1 lb. shredded cheddar cheese

1 can (10 oz.) RO*TEL Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.


Cook macaroni as directed on package;
drain and set aside.  Melt margarine over low heat.  Stir in flour; cook
1 minute, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and bubbly.  Stir
in milk; heat to a boil; stirring constantly.  Reduce heat and simmer until
thickened, about 1 minute. 


Add cheese and RO*TEL.  Stir until cheese
is melted, then remove from heat.  Stir macaroni into cheese sauce.

Transfer to an ungreased 9 x 12-inch baking dish.  Bake uncovered 30
minutes or until heated through.  Serves 10.
