Bleu Cheese Sriracha Mac And Cheese

It is starting to get cold in my area and today we are going to heat it up! We are going to bring together some really bold flavors to make a strong tasting mac and cheese. This Blue Cheese Sriracha Mac and Cheese recipe is not for the faint of heart, but if you like strong flavors or like the taste of spicy chicken wings, this might be the right recipe for you.

Why these ingredients?

I am a big fan of stinky cheeses and blue cheese definitely falls into the category. I also ALWAYS have some sriracha in our fridge and am pretty sure I use it more than ketchup. As a bit of inspiration from my love of chicken wings, I thought this would be a great combination to put in a macaroni and cheese.

We have been doing a deep dive into macaroni and cheese. This flavor combination feels like a natural fit to me, so I went with it. In addition to our exploration of the history of mac and cheese, we have been making various recipes that include a traditional recipe and a gouda and pear recipe.

While developing this recipe, I thought that this would be an appropriate one to have a nice crisp on top, so I decided to add some nommy cheezits on top in place of the breadcrumbs. I also felt it important to bake this recipe.

This is a flavor bomb! The Blue Cheese Sriracha Mac and Cheese is going to delight your senses and is an easy recipe!


  • 2 cups Hot & Spicy Cheez-Its
  • 2 cups dry macaroni
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups bleu cheese
  • 1/4 cup sriracha
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Pulse Cheez Its in food processor and set aside
  2. Preheat oven to 350
  3. Cook macaroni as directed on package, but only boil for about 80% of cooking time. It will finish in oven.
  4. While macaroni is cooking, in large saucepan melt butter on low
  5. When butter is fully melted, slowly start sprinkling flour in the pan and continuously mix. The idea is that the mixture of flour and butter will form almost a paste.
  6. Pour in just a little of the milk and whisk until smooth. Keep on repeating until all milk is blended in.
  7. Turn heat to medium-high and continuously stir. We want to get the sauce just to boiling and thicken.
  8. When the sauce starts to heat up, you will notice it start to thicken. Just continue to stir and once boiling, continue stirring for one minute.
  9. Remove from direct heat and slowly add 2 cups of the cheese to the bechamel while stirring.
  10. Add sriracha to sauce
  11. Once this is a smooth sauce, add cheese sauce and drained macaroni to a baking dish and mix together.
  12. Add remaining 1 cup of cheese on top of macaroni and cheese
  13. Add Cheez Its to top
  14. Put the dish into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until top layer of cheese is golden brown.
  15. Serve!

  1. You’re a man after my own heart, Ben!! This is epic, and I need to taste it today ~ the cheez-its crust is inspired.

  2. LOVE this twist on Mac n Cheese! Blue cheese and sriracha sound like a divine combination to take this classic up a few notches

  3. What a great recipe! I’m a big fan of all things spicy and definitely cheese. Blue cheese and gorgonzola cheese are among my favorites.

  4. Sounds delicious! We’re huge blue cheese and sriracha fans at my house! (Although I’m not sure I’ve ever tried the two together- YUM!)

  5. I’m a huge fan of stinky cheeses too! And I love blue cheese. This mac and cheese with sriracha looks fabulous!! I’m only sad that I’ll have to have a light hand on the sriracha sauce as hubby is a lightweight! 🙂

  6. Wow, I wouldn’t have thought of using Cheez-Its as crust or topping before and adding blue cheese to macaroni and cheese, yummy. I will have to try this recipe out soon.

  7. Dude, sign me up for the strong flavors. I love spicy foods so I would add some additional spice but still, your recipe sounds utterly outstanding! I can’t wait to try it!

  8. Well you can NEVER go wrong with mac’n cheese. We love sriracha here, but not blue cheese so much. That is not a problem however…since we are cheese LOVERS. Swapping it out for another variety is NO issue at all….I usually have at least 5 different kinds in the fridge at all times. Along with an endless supply of pasta too.
