This stuff is the bomb. It is cheesy, spicy, smokey, salty and hearty. Who knew a mac and cheese could be so many things? My favorite part of it is all that smokey chorizo. I have been known to go through the pot and eat as many bits of chorizo I can before serving my guests, including the hubs. I can’t help it. I am addicted. A vegetarian that eats smoked chorizo and crispy bacon whenever it’s available may seen taboo, but that’s ok. I mean, it’s not like I convinced you I was this die hard vegetarian or anything… right?
