  • 1 Let’s begin by dividing the recipe into 3 parts. First, you need to make the meat sauce. Second, the béchamel sauce and last, you just need to assemble them.
  • 2 To make the meat sauce, you just need to pre-heat your pan in medium high heat and pour some oil. Throw in the garlic and onion and sauté them until the garlic is light golden in color and the onion is translucent.
  • 3 Now, add the chorizo and ground meat together and cook until light brown in color. Bring the bell peppers in and cook this for another 2-3 minutes before adding the dissolved Knorr Kaldereta Complete Recipe Mix, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Let this boil before simmering until thick. Our meat sauce is now done. Let’s continue by preparing our Bechamel sauce.
  • 4 To make the béchamel, just melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat then add the flour. You need to cook the flour for 2-3 minutes in butter for 2 reasons. First: to remove the raw taste of the flour. Second: to give color to your Bechamel. Pour the the milk and water next and stir until thick. Add the Cheddar cheese and stir until melted then set this aside.
  • 5 Since our meat sauce and Bechamel sauce are done, it’s now time to put them together by tossing the cooked elbow macaroni with the caldereta sauce. Transfer to a baking dish then pour the béchamel on top. Bake the Caldereta Mac n Cheese in a 350 F preheated oven for 30 minutes. You might be wondering now where the parmesan cheese will go. You sprinkle this on top of the pasta just before serving.
  • 6 When you serve this Caldereta Mac and Cheese Recipe to your family, they will surely thank you for it.
