  • 3 cups elbow macaroni
  • 16 ounces Velveeta cubed
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese blend shredded
  • 2 cups white cheddar cheese shredded, can substitute any shredded white cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups whole milk
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten


  • Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain well. Transfer to a 5 quart or larger slow cooker that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Cook, covered, on low for 2-1/2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.


You can also cook this on the stovetop. Instead of transferring to a slow cooker, just return the drained pasta to the pot in which you cooked it. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 30 minutes or until the cheeses have melted and the mixture is heated thoroughly, stirring often.
