What is not to like about macaroni and cheese? Noodles covered in cheese is always a good thing in my opinion.
We love macaroni and cheese and eat it often at our house. We eat usually eat it for lunch, but it also makes a great side or main dish for dinner.
Because we eat macaroni and cheese often, I like to change it up and make different versions. One easy way to change up macaroni and cheese is to use different cheeses.
One of my favorite cheeses to use for a different variation is pepper jack. Not only does pepper jack cheese add a little spiciness to the macaroni and cheese, but it gives it a nice creaminess that I don’t think you get with using just cheddar cheese.
