To prepare cheddar brat mac and cheese, begin by preheating a grill to medium-low. Grill a 19-ounce package of Johnsonville Cheddar Brats, and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Cook a 16-ounce package of elbow macaroni until the pasta is al dente.
Place a 23-ounce jar of Tostitos Salsa Con Queso, 1 cup of cubed sharp cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1/8 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper in a large disposable foil pan. Mix the ingredients well, then stir in the sliced brats and elbow macaroni. Top with 3/4 cup of shredded pepper jack cheese and 3 sliced green onions.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil, and place it on the grill. Grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. This recipe makes 5 servings, takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and its total cost is less than $10. Cheddar brat mac and cheese is kid-friendly and makes an ideal dish to pass at potlucks.
