Poblano Mac and Cheese

I love a good recipe off a soup can and this poblano mac and cheese does not disappoint. I was perusing the canned soups (don’t judge) when I stumbled across Campbell’s Condensed Creamy Poblano & Queso soup.

The label had me at queso.

Poblano Mac and Cheese -- one of my favorite recipes using condensed soup. So creamy with a bit of kick. Yum! Must make this ASAP.

My kids are super picky when it comes to mac and cheese. I’ve tried making homemade mac and cheese many times. They’re favorite recipe is this gourmet macaroni and cheese, but they also loved this crock pot mac and cheese.

That last one is super yummy with a dash or two of sriracha. Mmm…

This poblano mac and cheese is one of the easiest macaroni and cheese recipes I’ve made to date. I liked the flavor as is but you can tweak it according to your preferences. Don’t like tomatoes? Leave ’em out. Want it a bit spicier? Try substituting half the cheddar Jack cheese with pepper Jack or adding some diced green chilies or jalapenos. Want to make it prettier? Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro…something I totally forgot to do for these photos.

I doubled the recipe for our family and had plenty serving it as a main dish. If you’re going to serve it as a side, you could probably get away with a single batch.

Enjoy!
