Oh boy, I’m so in love with this Slow Cooker Mexican Macaroni and Cheese and I know you’re going to love it too! I’ve teamed up with Crystal Farms to bring you a fast and easy slow cooker recipe that is perfect for a busy weeknight that the whole family will enjoy! Plus, I have a fun giveaway today and one lucky person will win a brand new slow cooker! Woo hoo!
You probably know by now, I LOVE cheese. You may also know that I LOVE my slow cooker. I was really excited to come up with a family friendly recipe for Crystal Farms Cheese. Crystal Farms Cheese comes from Lake Mills, Wisconsin and since I’m a midwest girl, you know midwest cheese is the best! :)
Crystal Farms cheese is natural with only a few preservatives, a great source of calcium, and naturally gluten-free. They have a wide variety of cheeses in the refrigerated dairy section of your nearby grocery store so be sure to check out their great flavors and blends.
For this Mexican Mac & Cheese recipe, I decided to use Crystal Farms Mexican Taco Cheese Blend that contains several varieties of cheese and taco seasoning. Since the cheese also has taco seasoning, that’s one less ingredient to remember to buy at the store!
This Slow Cooker Mexican Macaroni and Cheese is the perfect mac and cheese recipe for a busy night. My whole family enjoyed it even my kids. Did I mention there’s only 6 ingredients? Most of the ingredients you probably already have around the house. Now that my kids are back in school it’s a great weeknight meal that I can prep in just a few minutes.
My kids loved adding their own favorite toppings such as guacamole, tortilla chips, sour cream, chopped onion, and salsa. You can certainly adjust the ingredients and toppings based on your family’s likes and dislikes as well as diet and allergy concerns. I would add more veggies next time such as onions and peppers with all the other ingredients in your crock-pot, but not sure my kids would agree. :) I hope you enjoy it!
Hope you enjoy!
