Chorizo Mac and Cheese

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 cups dried cavatappi or any swirled pasta
  • 3/4 pounds fresh chorizo sausage, casings removed
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/2 cups freshly grated extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt, to taste


Bring a pot of water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain when pasta is done cooking.
In a large skillet, brown chorizo over medium-high heat and break it up into pieces with a wooden spoon or spatula. Add green bell pepper and cook until softened. Place chorizo and bell peppers into a large bowl and set aside.
Return skillet to medium-high heat and melt butter. Whisk in the flour and cook it for about 30 seconds to cook off the raw flour taste. Add the milk and let thicken, about 3-4 minutes. Add the cheese and salt and stir until all the cheese has melted. Remove from heat.
Add chorizo and bell peppers back in, toss to incorporate.
Carefully add the pasta into the cheese sauce mixture and stir to incorporate everything evenly.
Divide into bowls and serve.
