Jalapeño Mac & Cheese

cavatappi pasta, smoked gouda, sharp cheddar

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.

Too spicy
3 Stars
Loved the texture and type of pasta...super al dente, but the dish overall lacked flavor. I pretty much only tasted jalapenos. It could use a little more cheese, cream and salt.
3 Stars
I feel that the jalapeno flavor needs to be more Incorporated.

Needs to be creamier and had no cheesy taste, would do better with stauffers

What happened to the rich creaminess?? So sad, this was my favorite item here on Munchery. Order 4 of them, all lacking cream, very dry.

Both my husband and I really like this side dish! It is so full of flavor and quite filling if one to eat it as a light lunch. I've had a lot of different types of Mac & Cheese but this is nothing like I have had in the past. Props to Chef Micah!

This was creamy and tasty, and just the right amount. I wish the cheese had a little more bite and a few more jalapenos.

It was good, but it's just Mac'n'Cheese. I got a nice kick from the japaleños. I suggest adding some crispy fried onions on top
5 Stars
Super yum! Not too spicy (I wouldn't have minded even more jalapenos).
5 Stars
This was the bomb! Super delish! Was worried it might be too spicy since I'm a spicy lightweight but it was just a "hint" of jalapeno. Will order again!
5 Stars
dangerously good!!!!!
3 Stars
No doubt this mac n' cheese was pretty dang good. But very high on the calories! I could've eaten the whole thing myself, but instead shared it with co-workers because I didn't want to spend 1/3 of my daily calories on one item. More jalapenos!

Dear Chef Micah, you made my day with this dish. The blend of tangy cheese, fresh jalapeno and perfectly cooked pasta was the exact counterpoint needed to a crappy workday. The ultimate comfort food. Well prepared, flavorful and... comforting.
