  • 1.5 c Macaroni
  • 1 tbsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 1/3 c Milk (whole milk is preferred or half and half, but I've tried this even with oatmilk and it's still fantastic!)
  • 2 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • ~3.5 oz Butter (almost a full stick of butter)
  • 3.5 c Tillamook Mexican Four Cheese Blend (tightly packed; 3 cups for the sauce; 1/2 c for the topping)
  • 1 c Pasta Water
  • 1/4 c Chopped Shallots


  • Start by melting your butter on a medium-low heat.
  • Add in your chopped shallots, and sauté for about a minute.
  • Gently whisk in your all purpose flour and mix well.
  • Add in your milk and cheese, and mix everything together. Make sure the heat is kept on low to medium. You don't want it to be too hot!
  • Once the cheese has dissolved, you can add in your cajun seasoning and Frank's Red Hot.
  • Cook your macaroni according to package instructions but subtract a couple of minutes from the cook time.
  • Mix your cooked macaroni with your cheese sauce and pour the mixture into a baking dish.
  • Add the remaining cheese on top of your mac n cheese and broil for about 2-3 minutes in the oven until the top is nice and crispy.
