A combination of spice and creamy cheese sauce with a touch of fresh chives combine to create flavors you’ll want to eat again and again. The secret to this elevated comfort food is the three types of cheese that were used, which creates a balance of flavor. If you want to spice up this dish even more, you can add a teaspoon chili flakes. Adding a bit of crispy bacon on top of the mac & cheese will create a perfect finish to the dish."
