Buffalo Blue Cheese Mac

Creamy blue cheese mac with the combination of Buffalo sauce creates a luscious bite.


  1. To cook the macaroni, follow the packaging directions. Salt the water with 1 tablespoon of salt while simmering the pasta.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk to a simmer.
  3. While the milk is heating, in a medium stainless steel saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour, stirring constantly with a whisk for 2 minutes to make a roux.
  4. Slowly add the scalded milk to the roux, while still stirring, until it becomes smooth like a sauce.
  5. Heat the sauce mix for 5 minutes to cook out the flour flavor, and then add blue cheese crumbles, chili powder, paprika, 2 teaspoons salt, pepper and hot sauce.
  6. Mix the pasta with the blue cheese sauce.
  7. Serve.
