Mac and Cheese with Green Chile! I love Mac and cheese. It is amazing as an adult how many things from childhood still stand the test of time. I liked Mac and Cheese as a kid & I still do today, enjoy! Ingredients: 3/4 sleeve crumbled crackers or bread crumbs 1 Tbsp Butter 3 cups uncooked macaroni 2 eggs 2 cups milk 10 oz. ricotta cheese 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup mayonnaise 8-10 oz. Mexican Shredded cheese (grated) 1/4 to 1/2 cup Hatch Green Chile Salt and pepper to taste Directions: To make the crumb topping, melt the butter in a medium saucepan until melted. Add the crumbs and cook on medium heat until just toasted; 4-5 minutes. Cook macaroni as directed until just al dente; drain and set aside. Lightly grease the inside of an oven proof baking dish. Beat eggs until combined and add milk, ricotta cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise and Mexican cheese blend and stir until thoroughly combined.
