We've taken a comfort food classic and given it two taste twists. For over-the-top ooey-gooey goodness, sink your teeth into the Three-Cheese version; for zip and crunch, try the Mex Mac and Cheese. Thinking outside the box never tasted so good.
Replace 1 cup of the Cheddar with 3 oz cream cheese, cubed, and 4 oz shredded Gruyère cheese. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese and 1/4 teaspoon chopped Italian parsley over the top of each ramekin.
Substitute 8 oz cubed process cheese spread with jalapeño peppers for the sharp Cheddar cheese. Stir in 1/4 cup salsa, and top with 1/2 cup corn chips, crushed.
Four (4 1/2-inch) foil pie pans can be substituted for the ramekins, gratin dishes or custard cups.
