I love that this jalapeño popper Mac and cheese is really versatile. Like things extra spicy? Maybe a little more mild. Want a vegetarian Mac and cheese? Or how about some extra protein? I’ve got you covered!

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING JALAPENO POPPER MAC AND CHEESE:

  • Pasta can be cooked ahead of time. Just toss it with a bit of olive oil, stir if occasionally as it cools, and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • Panko can also be made ahead of time and stored on the counter in an airtight container.
  • For a spicier Mac and cheese, leave the seeds in the jalapeño, and/or add more jalapeño. Alternately, you can buck tradition and add a Serrano or two. Swap out some of the cheese (either mozzarella or American) for pepper jack.
  • For a more mild Mac and cheese, use less jalapeños, or use pickled (jarred) jalapeños (the mild variety).
  • For a vegetarian version, omit the bacon completely.
  • For a meatier version, add some extra bacon. Also, 1 1/2 cups of shredded chicken makes a great addition to the bacon as well!

Absolutely!

  • Make as directed, minus the panko topping (but do not bake), transfer to baking dish and cool completely. Cover tightly with foil and refrigerate 1-2 days ahead.
  • Before baking, let dish sit on counter for 30 minutes.
  • Top with panko and bake at recipe temperature for 25-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

The panko topping on this Mac and cheese is optional, but I really like it since it really brings home that “jalapeño popper” flavor and texture!

I hope you give this comfort food classic with a twist a try soon!

HELPFUL TOOLS:

  • Deep saucepan – perfect for sauces of any kind!
  • 9×13 baking dish – in case you’re looking for a new one, this one is inexpensive and I love the lid!
