All you got to do is swing by your local KFC, place your order for that KFC Hot & Spicy Chicken, and bring it back home. Once you got it there, then all you got to do is mix in the ingredients in this specific order below.

Here are the directions for making the Hot & Spicy Mac ‘n’ Cheese:

  1. Cook pasta until firm when bitten, drain, and set aside.
  2. Place ¼ cup of milk in a small bowl and whisk in flour until all the lumps are gone.
  3. Place the other ½ cup of milk in a small saucepan over medium heat and mix in the spices/hot sauce. The spicier you like, the more you add.
  4. Once steam is coming off the milk, whisk in the milk and flour mixture until the sauce thickens (it should take about 4 minutes).
  5. Turn the heat down to low and gradually mix in the cheese until it’s all melted.
  6. Remove saucepan from heat, then stir in the pasta and fresh herbs.
  7. Throw Hot & Spicy Chicken on top, and serve in a bowl.
