Mac & cheese gets a kick thanks to this grown-up version that has a blend of smoked gouda, sharp cheddar, and fresh jalapeño. Quality ingredients give this mac 'n' cheese depth in flavor and just enough heat to tingle the taste buds. If you have the time, we recommend that you heat this up in the oven to make sure it comes out warm and cheesy and forms a bit of a crunchy golden-brown crust. Served with a spring mix salad and lemon-shallot vinaigrette.

What People Are Saying

5 Stars
Very tasty. Perfect mix of creaminess with the crunchy breadcrumb topping. Very tiny jalapeno kick, not much but you do taste it so if the word 'jalapeno' in the title is scaring you off don't worry, it's mild. Side salad was a nice accompaniment.

Portion was a little smaller than expected but it was tasty. Salad was also pretty tiny.

Jalapeños were not spicy and added a weird texture. It would have been better without them! The sauce was yummy and thick.
5 Stars
I love jalapenos, but sometime in the past few years I've become a pepper wimp. It's very disappointing. But I order jalapeno stuff anyway, and just regret it. The price I pay. This was great. Tasted very jalapeno-y, but didn't burn.

Really runny, lacked flavor, presentation was sloppy and the salad was wilted

The salad was the tiniest, worst salad ever. A few wilted leaves and one cherry tomato. Pathetic.

Need more Jalapeño

The green vegetable is not a good addition

Cheese and noodles are always, good. But this dish lacked luster. There was barely a hint of jalapeño and for the cost, the portion was laughable. This is a $6.95 dish at best.

The flavor was delicious. But I feel like either the Mac or salad component should be substantially larger. I was still hungry afterwards and a little disappointed that they made it so that you either had to take out the pasta or the salad to warm

Tasty but jalapeño is practically nonexistent.
