This is another grown-up mac & cheese. This has a nice earthy depth of flavor but less complex than the recently reviewed Truffle Mac & Cheese.  This product adds Hatch Chiles to a classic cheddar cheese base.  If you’re worried that the chiles make this mac & cheese spicy hot, no need for that.  Only a very very mild heat can be detected in sporadic bites when a bit of the green chili actually finds its way to your fork.  Mostly, the chiles just adds a secondary complementary flavor to the cheese adding to the depth of flavor.

But I leave that experiment for you.

What’s a Hatch Chili?  Well it’s hard to say other than these chiles were grown in or around Hatch, New Mexico (according to information on the box).  For those interested here’s the Wiki link.

Price $2.99 per frozen box (two servings per box)
