How to Make Green Chile Mac and Cheese

Slowly whisk in milk. Raise heat to medium and slowly bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Cook for 2 minutes. Stir in chiles. Set aside 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese. Add remaining cheddar & all of the pepper jack cheese to skillet & cook, stirring, until all cheese has melted. Season with salt & pepper.
  • 3Add pasta to skillet; stir. Mist a 13x9" baking dish with cooking spray & add pasta mixture.
  • 4Combine corn chips with reserved cheddar cheese; sprinkle over pasta. Place dish on lined baking sheet; bake until pasta mixture is bubbling and top is golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
