Say goodbye to bland, watery macaroni and cheese with neon orange sauce! This kicked-up recipe for a Tex-Mex inspired Ranchero Mac and Cheese Bake will truly show you how good homemade macaroni and cheese can be. This tasty twist on a traditional cheese sauce recipe uses Picante sauce for a subtle spice dimension, while the crunch factor from the crushed tortilla chips adds an amazing texture. With only six ingredients, this stunning, easy Ranchero Mac and Cheese Bake can be yours -- give it a try!


Preparation Time20 min

  • 12 ounces (3 cups) elbow-shaped pasta, cooked and drained
  • 3 ounces tortilla chips, coarsely crushed (about 1 cup)
