      Title: Brenda's macaroni and cheese with chiles
 Categories: Pasta, Tnt - badam, Cookbooks, News, , gs
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      2 c  Macaroni; medium elbow
           -(shells work too)
    1/4 c  Butter; or margarine
      3 tb Flour; or masa harina **
      1 ts Salt
    1/2 ts Garlic powder (or 3 cloves
           -garlic; minced)
    1/8 ts Black pepper
      3 c  Milk
    1/4 c  Onion; grated onion (I chop)
      4 oz Green chiles; chopped (OR
           -fresh roasted)
      2 oz Pimiento; chopped (or red
           -bell pepper)
      3 c  Cheddar cheese*; shredded
    1/2 c  Crushed tortilla chips;
           -(opt.)
           Paprika*
           Salsa* for garnish; opt.)
 
  * Original recipe calls for Jack cheese
  
  ** I keep Masa Harina in bags in freezer.
  
  Cook macaroni in boiling salted water until tender but firm and drain.
  
  Make cheese sauce (I do this part in microwave oven). Melt butter in
  large saucepan. Blend in flour, salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Cook
  , stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Slowly add milk, stirring until
  smooth. Add onion, chiles, and pimento. Cook until thickened. Stir in
  cheese and cook until melted.
  
  Combine macaroni and cheese sauce. Pour into 2 1/2-quart casserole.
  Top with tortilla crumbs and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350 F
  degrees 25 minutes. Serve at once. Serves 6
  
  Note: I sometimes top w/fresh salsa, or any kind. Most of my other
  changes or edits are in parentheses. This dish is good with other
  veges thrown in too. A good buffet dish for company. Masa Harina, if
  used in place of flour to thicken, gives dish a nice Mexican kind of
  flavor.
