Tillamook Pepper Jack Macaroni & Cheese

Enjoy a family favorite with a twist that’s not only loaded with delicious flavor, but also packs a small Pepper Jack punch. Mac-N-Cheese is always #1 on the kids list so this recipe not only lets the kids enjoy it, but also gives it an adult twist!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
Yield (number of servings): 6

3 tablespoons Tillamook Salted Butter
⅛ cup Tillamook Fat Free Sour Cream
1 cup Tillamook Pepper Jack Cheese, shredded
⅛  cup milk
2 cups macaroni noodles
4 cups water

In a pot, heat on high until water begins to boil. Add macaroni noodles and cook for 8-10 minutes. When noodles have completely cooked, remove from heat and drain off excess water.

Once water has been drained, add Tillamook salted butter, sour cream, Pepper Jack cheese, and milk to noodles, and stir well. Serve and enjoy!
