Spicy Buffalo Mac and Cheese is a fiery twist on the classic comfort food, combining creamy mac and cheese with bold Buffalo sauce for a tantalizing, spicy kick. The recipe involves cooking pasta, preparing a spicy Buffalo sauce, and a creamy cheese sauce with cheddar, mozzarella, and cream cheese. Once the pasta is cooked, it’s tossed in the spicy Buffalo sauce, mixed with the creamy cheese sauce, and baked until golden brown. The dish can be garnished with green onions or celery and served hot. The spiciness of the Buffalo sauce can be adjusted, different types of cheese can be used, and the dish can be prepared in advance. It pairs well with chopped green onions or celery for added freshness, and can be served alongside a light salad or vegetables.
