Description

It’s creamy macaroni and cheese meets jalapeno poppers. Great for your football party potluck.

Ingredients

  • ⅔ packages (16 Oz. Size) Pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • 1-½ cup Milk
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 8 ounces, weight Pepper Jack Cheesee
  • 6 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Room Temperature
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ⅓ cups Seasoned Bread Crumbs
  • 2 whole Medium Jalapeno Peppers, Thinly Sliced

Preparation

Prepare pasta according to box directions.

Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter and whisk in flour. When it is blended and has formed a paste, whisk in milk slowly. Whisk until smooth and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to low. Mix in salt, pepper jack cheese and cream cheese. (Save the cheddar for topping.) Mix until smooth and until the sauce has thickened.

Pour sauce over cooked pasta. Mix together and transfer into a medium casserole dish. Top with cheddar cheese, bread crumbs and then jalapeno slices.

Bake at 400ºF for about 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden and the cheese is bubbling.
