Chery'ls Mac & Cheese

I am sure there are many of you out there that have to Compete with their Mother-in-Law's cooking. Well I am definitely one of those women. No matter how many Great and Amazing things I cook my husband loves when I go back to the "basics" and take a recipe from his mother. Luckily she is also a great cook so I have quite a few recipes to choose from.

One of my favorites is her Mac & Cheese with Green Chilies ( she always makes one without the chilies as well for the kids).
I used some different cheese, noodles and added a bread crumb topping but it is basically her recipe.

Stir till cheese is melted then add to pasta. Top with grated cheese pieces of butter and a breadcrumb topping
