This Cajun Shrimp and Crab Mac and Cheese is too smooth, gooey and debauched. This heavenly turn to the great dish will most likely be your new top pick!

I made this macintosh and cheddar for Christmas supper a year ago, and it was a HIT! The way that my whole family appreciated it was such a major ordeal, since dark people don't play with regards to macintosh and cheddar. We should be genuine.

Since it's gotten such a significant number of positive surveys, this has now become my go-to macaroni formula!

Standard prepared macintosh and cheddar is now incredible (if it's done well), yet the expansion of crisp crab and hot Cajun shrimp makes it a lot more extraordinary.

You get a chomp of shrimp, crab and macaroni secured with a mix of gooey, stringy cheeses and an eruption of mixed flavors in each nibble!
