The Secret to Creamy

Velveeta Mac and Cheese

Our Family Lifestyle

Mac and cheese is a beloved comfort food that’s been a staple in households for generations. But let’s be honest, not all mac and cheese dishes are created equal.

But what’s the secret to achieving that perfect creamy and delicious mac and cheese?

Use the right amount of cheese


The ideal ratio of cheese to pasta is 1 cup of cheese for every 8 ounces of pasta.

Don’t overcook the cheese


To prevent this, heat the cheese over low heat and stir it constantly until it’s melted and smooth.

Add milk for extra creaminess


Start with small amount and add more as needed until you achieve desired consistency.

Making homemade Velveeta mac and cheese in a slow cooker is a great option for busy weeknights — or when you’re feeding a crowd!
