Macaroni and Cheese with Black Beans and Chipotle


When combined, grains and legumes make for one world-class, ultra-comforting, super healthy meal. Haha, who am I kidding? We're talking mac and cheese here, forget healthy, all we want is gooey, creamy, ultra-comforting, and delicious, right?

This week's variation combines our quick and easy stovetop cooking method (it takes just about as much time as opening that blue box) along with drained black beans and some canned chipotle chilies which add a touch of sophisticated smoky heat to the whole affair. If you like it extra hot, go ahead and add some extra chopped fresh chilies to the mix. I won't tell.
