Ultra Creamy, Crunchy Cheetos Mac and Cheese

In my entire life, rarely have i seen people who do not like cheese or cheetos! The most spicy series of cheetos go really well with cheeses if made into some yummilicious recipes!
Here, we have thought of a recipe that you can try at home during the lock down cravings!
Note for anybody who reads this: This is truly a delicious recipe, might wet your taste buds while reading itself!
Ingredients:
Here’s what you’ll need to make this mac and cheese recipe for yourself (including the best cheese sauce for mac and cheese you’ll ever find!):
  • Noodles (Use cavatappi, penne, rotini, and regular macaroni noodles for this recipe before and they all work great!)
  • Crushed Cheetos: You can use Crunchy Cheetos (personal favorite), Cheetos Puffs, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, whatever you like best!
  • Sharp cheddar cheese that you shred yourself from the block (it’s so much better than buying shredded)
  • Whole milk and a bit of whipping cream 
  • Garlic powder, mustard powder, and onion powder
  • Butter (some for the roux and some for the Cheetos topping)
  • Flour
  • Salt

Instructions

  • In a large pot of salted water, boil your pasta according to package directions. Cook for one minute less than the package states if you like your pasta more al dente. While the pasta cooks, preheat your oven to 350F.
  • In a large saucepan, melt 2 tbsp. of butter on medium heat. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the 2 tbsp. of flour, mixing constantly.
  • Once the butter and flour are mixed and begin to form a paste, SLOWLY add the milk and cream. Stir constantly! Add the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and mustard powder, and mix well. Keep cooking this mixture on medium heat until it begins to thicken and gently bubble.
  • Once the roux is gently bubbling and has thickened up a little bit, turn off the heat*. Now, add your shredded cheese and stir gently.
  • Add your cheese mixture to the noodles once all the cheese has melted and incorporated. Stir gently and pour into a butter, oven-safe dish.
