Ingredients
  • 6 cups elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (optional)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup Sargento® Shredded 6 Cheese Italian
  • 1 cup Sargento® Shredded 4 State Cheddar® Cheese
  • 1 cup Sargento® Shredded Authentic Mexican Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped chives or parsley
  • 12 6-inch flour tortillas
  • Your favorite Pork, Chicken, Beef or Sausage BBQ (held warm)
  • Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Topper:
  • 4 lb. boneless pork butt roast, cut in half
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cups prepared barbecue sauce
  • 12 oz. cola
Directions
  1. Cook pasta as directed. Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, if desired, in butter for 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper and allow to cook for approx. 3 minutes. Gradually add milk and cook, whisking continuously, until thickened.
  3. Remove from heat. Add cheeses (while keeping about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese aside to garnish tacos) and stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Combine cheese sauce with cooked macaroni. Add chives or parsley.
  5. Scoop approximately 1 large serving spoon of mac and cheese into tortilla. Add approximately 1-2 tablespoon(s) of BBQ and sprinkle cheese over the top.
  6. Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Instructions: Place both pieces of pork in a 4-5 quart slow cooker. Sprinkle brown sugar, paprika, and pepper over pork and turn pork around with a fork to coat pork with seasoning. Pour barbecue sauce and cola over pork. Cover slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or until pork pulls easily with a fork. Cool pork, then shred meat using two forks. Use on 15 Cheese Mac and Cheese Tacos, or on buns of your choice, topped with Sargento cheese.
