This rich and creamy avocado macaroni and cheese is so completely irresistible and is full of fantastic, spicy and fun flavors.

Here we go again with another macaroni and cheese recipe! Our number one go-to meal when we have no idea what to make is Mac and cheese. We love how simple it is and how every ingredient is always in our fridge. This week, I am recovering from being sick and Dan is trying to recover from the gross disease he caught from me. Once he finally got his appetite back, I decided to whip up a pot of creamy and delicious macaroni! The minute I mentioned macaroni, my sick husband finally perked up. Trying to give it a new twist, I remembered Dan mentioning trying avocado Mac and cheese, and I quickly grabbed the avocados ripening on our countertop. Slicing an avocado and placing it on top of a beautiful bed of macaroni made this avocado macaroni and cheese completely irresistible and full of fantastic flavors.

We love how adding one ingredient to a dish makes it completely change and become a fresh idea. This time, it was two amazing ingredients! Not only did we give macaroni a new spin by adding an unexpected ingredient, but we also added something else that we could have never dreamed of. Besides the avocado, we also added guacamole mix. This gave the macaroni and cheese an incredible twist and a great, spicy flavor! This meal came completely out of Dan’s head and was led by random ingredients on our countertop and in our pantry. I would never dream of adding guacamole mix to pasta, but it one-hundred percent worked!
