Spicy mac and cheese is definitely one of life’s little pleasures. So we where delighted to hear Trader Joe’s announce a new frozen mac and cheese that features the ever-awesome hatch chili.
The New Mexico native chili pepper boasts a sweet, spicy and earthy flavor that comes from roasting it. Trader Joe’s new macaroni features semolina elbow macaroni in a creamy cheese sauce that’s made with a combination of Cheddar, milk and butter.
The chile itself is roasted, chopped and mixed into the mac so that the heat is evenly distributed.
A 12-ounce box that serves two will cost you $2.99. One might not be enough for us.
