Stovetop Macaroni and Chipotle Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is good enough on its own, but the addition of Sartori Chipotle BellaVitano® cheese takes it over the top.

A flavor-packed mix of south-of-the-border inspired seasonings, this award-winning cheese is a mouthwatering blend of savory smokiness and creamy goodness. Ideal for time-crunched cooks, this quick to prepare recipe can be on the table in no time.

Add a sprinkling of smoked paprika just before serving, if desired, to complement the fusion of flavors in this velvety dish.
