    This was the first time I have made Mac&cheese. It worked out so well! I love Chorizo but didn’t have any. I used mild Italian. It worked. Also love cilantro so used lots. I used about ⅓ cup of Parmesan with the cheeses in the recipe. My wife says I can make it again any time. I might use some crumbled bacon next time to jazz it up a bit.

    Yum!! Turned out so good and my boyfriend said it was a much better version of hamburger helper. I made this with Morning Star Veggie Chorizo (2/3-1/2 bag). After cooking finely diced Bell Peppers and White Onion (1/2 C each) (peppers first for a minute or 2)(season GSP, smoked Paprika, Chili powder and little cumin) I set them aside and cooked the frozen Veggie Chorizo in same pot (per directions on bag). Added 1/4-1/3 C each hot Black Beans and hot frozen Corn (microwave). Cook 1 min. Added cooked onion and peppers back to pot. Cook 1 min. Continue. I used a smidge more milk. I used Velveeta and some shredded Colby jack for lack of Colby jack. Luckily I had pepper jack. I used a 2 day old corn bread muffin, some panko, smoked paprika, salt, garlic and cayenne for the topping part. It makes enough for 4-5, or 2 and left overs! I wanted to post a picture with my comment but couldn’t paste or insert..
    I might use less veggie chorizo next time so I get a tad more cheese flavor. I would definitely add fresh tomato and avocado on top next time too. :)

    Made it tonight. It was fantastic. Used panko breadcrumbs. Otherwise followed recipe. Thanks for sharing this.

    Great recipe! My family loved this flavor! It does need some adjusting to make more of Mac n Cheese texture and not like a casserole. I increased milk and cheese and I also altered the pepper jack- did 1/2 pepper jack and 1/2 jalapeño jack – it was the perfect blend to increase the spicy heat of the chorizo. I saw the Doritos crushed topping suggestion and did that. Amazing! I added a thin layer of shredded cheddar before adding the Dorito topping and dotted with butter. My family wants this to be my go-to dish for parties now!

    What size small casserole was used for this recipe – maybe 8×8″?
