Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 2:

Boil a pot of water. Do not add oil to the water. Once boiling, add the elbow macaroni and a teaspoon of salt. Mix and cook until al dente.

Step 3:

Cut the Velveeta cheese into blocks. Get a pot and place it over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter and two tablespoons of flour into the pot. Whisk continuously until you take out the raw taste of the flour for about 2 minutes.

Step 4:

Add evaporated milk gradually while continuously mixing until it becomes warm. Next, add the grounded annatto to the mixture. Mix until it becomes a cheese-like color.

Step 5:

Add the Velveeta cheese and some sharp cheddar cheese onto the pot. Continuously mix the sauce until it thickens as you don’t want to burn the bottom.
