More Than Mac 'n' Cheese at Jus' Mac

1 of 14
I don't know why it's never occurred to me to combine a Frito pie with macaroni and cheese. Perhaps even if I'd thought of it, I'd have dismissed it as a bridge too far. But the Chili Cheese macaroni and cheese at Jus' Mac is a thing of beauty: The meaty homemade chili is wound through the creamy sauce and pasta in a way that combines the two yet keeps them separate enough not to be confused with chili-mac. A handful of Fritos on top works to provide a nice contrast of textures between the springy pasta and silky sauce, making for an altogether perfect dish. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
