Mexican Mac and Cheese – Big Cove Foods

Mexican Mac and Cheese

Comfort food is always appropriate during a pandemic!

Mac and cheese has been a staple here for the past month, so sprucing it up was a refreshing, and necessary, change.

We scored some awesome Chorizo sausages at Red Mountain Farm that when paired with our Taco Enhancer spice blend made for a fabulous Mexican themed pasta dish. To ease some of the guilt of eating so many cheesy noodle dishes, spinach from Streamside Farms was the perfect ingredient to justify our guilty pleasure.

Knoydart Farm’s ‘medium cheddar cheese’ added the perfect creaminess that every mac n’ cheese dish strives to achieve. We missed out on grabbing it from the New Glasgow Farmers Markets online shop, but luckily you can still support local as they carry Knoydart products in Sobeys as well!

For even more heat, try our Ghost Taco!
