Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 2 ½-quart casserole dish. Cook 2 cups macaroni in a large saucepan according to package directions; drain. Return to saucepan. Add 2 cups Cheddar cheese, 1 ½ cups Pepper Jack cheese, a 12-oz. can of evaporated milk, and ½ teaspoon black pepper to macaroni; stir until combined. Pour into prepared casserole dish. Combine remaining ½ cup Pepper Jack cheese, ½ to 1 cup tortilla chips, and ¼ to ½ cup red pepper flakes in small bowl (or zip lock bag to crush). Sprinkle over top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover; bake for an additional 10 minutes or until lightly browned. My family loved this spicy macaroni and cheese! I hope you like it! --Betty
