Check out this simple Green Chili Mac & Cheese recipe.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • 1/3 cupe chopped roasted poblano peppers
  • 8 oz cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz Monterey Jack cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • kosher salt to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, add milk, cream, and salsa verde and bring to a simmer.
  3. In a nonstick pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Slowly add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon to create a roux. Cook for approximately five minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Pour the contents of the pot into the roux and combine with a whisk. Gently simmer to thicken (approx. 10-15 minutes). Frequently stir with a wooden spoon to prevent the bottom from burning.
