Go ahead and give in to your craving for the comforting taste of macaroni and cheese! Our Spicy Tomato Mac 'n' Cheese takes your taste buds on a zesty adventure with extra pizzazz!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound penne pasta
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 medium-sized sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) loaf Mexican-style pasteurized prepared cheese product, cubed (see Options)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained (see Options)

What to Do

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add onion, and sauté 3 minutes, or until tender. Add cheese, and cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until the cheese melts. Stir in sour cream, blending well.
  3. Stir in tomatoes and pasta; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.


To tame the spiciness, switch to regular prepared cheese product and mild diced tomatoes with green chilies. You’ll get all the flavor with just a slight kick.
