We've given this comforting classic a tasty Mexican makeover. Our mac 'n' cheese is flavoured with spicy chipotle, topped with a smoked paprika crumb and laced with mixed peppers and red onion. We've cut out the faff by replacing the white sauce with crème fraîche for simpler, quicker cooking. Arriba arriba!
