Not going to lie, the last few days at home have been hard! At times, I definitely feel myself in a “creative funk” when it comes to curating content & recipes. However, speaking with you guys via DM and IG stories has been super helpful in helping me be productive and create content! I shared some of my tips & feelings on my IG story and would love to hear how you guys have been keeping busy. In the meantime, stay home and enjoy my chipotle Mac & cheese recipe! Don’t forget to save and share! xx

Chipotle Mac & Cheese


  • 1 package of elbow macaroni noodles 
  • 3 cups of whole milk 
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-3 chipotle chilies in adobo sauce (depending how spicy you want it)
  • 3 tbsp of flour 
  • 1 tsp of paprika 
  • 3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1/2 cup butter 
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water for the macaroni. When water boils, pour in macaroni noodles and cook until pasta is al dente 
  2. While pasta is cooking, in a large sauce pan, melt butter and stir in garlic and chipotle chili’s for about five minutes (if you don’t want the sauce very spicy use only 1 chipotle). Add in flour.
  3. Whisk in milk (1/2 cup at a time) and stir in paprika, salt & pepper. Bring the sauce mixture to a simmer (do not boil), whisking constantly until thickened
  4. Whisk in cheese (1/2 cup at a time) and stir until cheese has melted and the sauce is thick & smooth (3 to 5 minutes)
  5. Pour the sauce over the macaroni in the pot (I like to leave in 1/2 cup of the pasta water) and stir until all the noodles are coated 
  6. Sprinkle some extra cheese on top and enjoy! xx
