Mexican Pork Cheese Pasta

Advertisements

Mexican pork cheese pasta was inspired by mac and cheese and traditional Mexican/Spanish spices. I also included pork in this recipe to add protein. This pasta dish is on the spicy side, but it’s not burn your mouth spicy, though it did give me a bit of a runny nose. This dish goes great with some bread on the side and dipped in the remaining cheese sauce. This dish is delicious and makes a lot of food for very little. This recipe made 8 Adult sized servings.
