Directions

Mealthy Tip

When making the roux, watch the butter and flour carefully until it reaches a golden brown hue. As you add the milk, the roux will absorb the liquid quickly. That's ok! As you slowly whisk and stir in the remaining milk, it will start to form a beautiful sauce!

Tarragon Boi says:

This was so good! Really creamy, spicy and delicious. I never thought of putting fajita flavors in anything other than fajitas. I'm going to try this again, with chicken!

This pasta is a little heavy, but boy is it delicious. I've made it twice, but the second time I didn't cook the pasta in milk and a used cotija cheese as a topping. The second time I made this I finished the fajitas with an ounce of silver tequila (until it burned off) and topped that mixture with a third of a cup of pasta water and the reserved juices from the shrimp that I'd previously cooked. It was a much lighter version of this recipe and still tasted great. That said, nothing beats the creamy cheesiness of this recipe as written.

I made this and found it very easy and a fun different take on fajitas! I think it would be very yummy with shredded chicken!

I reduced the spices a little because the only Monterey Jack cheese I could find was pepper jack. I shouldn't have worried. This was delicious, but way more than 4 servings.
