Sriracha Mac 'n Cheese

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Kick your mac and cheese up a serrrrrious notch with some Srirrrrracha!


Oh man. I’m all for variations on mac and cheese. But this latest one may be one of my new faves. And it’s all thanks to…(you guessed it)…the amazing Sriracha!!!

For those of you who don’t know, Sriracha is a fabulous “hot chili sauce” that was once traditionally used on different Asian foods. But now that it’s widely available in the States, it has been fun seeing recipes pop up using it on, well, pretty much everything!! And for good reason. Sriracha does an amazing job at adding that perfect “kick” to your dishes.

Which was definitely the case with this mac and cheese! We went with a classic stovetop recipe, and then topped it with a drizzle of the Sriracha goodness. But this would also be fun to serve with some tomatoes and chiles, chopped spinach, veggies, extra cheese for garnish…you name it! There are endless ingredients that could be optional. But the Sriracha is not. J

Seriously, try it. Here’s the how-to!

Sriracha sauce.

First, make sure you have the rockstar ingredient. You can find it in grocery stores in the Asian section.

Saute onions and garlic in butter.

Then sauté up some onions and garlic in butter. Once cooked, remove the onions with a slotted spoon.

Then use the same pan to melt some butter and add in flour to cook together and make a roux. After 2 minutes of cooking, sirring occasionally, whisk in the milk. Then slowly add in the cheeses, Yoplait Greek yogurt, and then season with salt and pepper.

Add your cooked pasta and onion mixture back in, and stir it all on the stovetop to make your classic mac & cheese.

Drizzle Sriracha sauce into macaroni mixture.

Then get ready to drizzle in the Sriracha goodness to kick this classic up a notch.

You now have permission to dive in. And garnish with some extra yummy toppings if you’d like. Enjoy!!

That's a totally easy recipe right there, just 20 minutes. But, if you want even easier by saving yourself from having to gather up ingredients, just grab a box of Betty Crocker's new Mac and Cheese mix and get it goin' that way instead! End with the Sriracha sauce, and you'll have a winner either way!
