Introduction: Jalapeno Mac & Cheese
I originally planned this recipe for the 20 minutes or less contest, but I never got around to completing it. This recipe is quick, easy, and very tasty!
Step 1: BoM
2-4 Fresh Jalapenos
4-8oz Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese
1/4 cup cream
Salt to taste
Step 2: Pasta
Add water, salt, and a little oil to a large pot and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling add your pasta and cook until the pasta is tender, about 8-10 minutes.
When the pasta is ready, drain it and then return to the pot and set aside. My mom usually adds a little butter to the pasta at this point, which is optional.
Step 3: Jalapeno Cheese
In a smaller pot, add the butter and cream, and heat on low-medium. Add the jalapenos and cheese and stir. Continue cooking until the cheese is melted. Depending on your thickness preference, you can add more cream.
Step 4: Mix!
When the cheese sauce is ready, pour it into the pot with the pasta and mix well. Serve immediately (although it's great the second and third time around).
