Macaroni and Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos

As soon as I saw Mac and Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos over at Bloggy Buddy Jenna's I knew I'd be making them! She wrapped hers in bacon and grilled them (lucky girl! No grilling for me yet). I used the oven and didn't have any bacon -no idea how that happened- so I just added a little breadcrumbs to the top. What's the red on the back two you ask??? Have you ever added hot sauce to mac-n-cheese? Oh Momma, that's some good stuff:@)

You can use leftover homemade or your favorite frozen macaroni and cheese... 
No idea how the blue box would work but I'm guessing that's best saved for the kid's lunch:@)
This is a great flavor combo folks, don't hesitate to try it!

Macaroni and Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos-adapted from The Painted Apron
  • Remove seeds and membrane from the jalapenos, generously stuff them with M&C, sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 16 minutes. Finish under the broiler to brown up the tops.
  • Drizzle with hot sauce if desired.
  • Please stop by Jenna's to see the recipe with bacon cooked on the grill.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  1. I add hot sauce to macaroni and cheese--doesn't everyone? I could go for a few (or more) of these.


  2. Lynn, oh my heavens, those look absolutley scrumptious!!! Wow, I'd like one now!! You always have the recipes, thank you!
    Have a great week!

  3. Now this is an interesting combo. Yes, I am surprised that bacon is not hidden somewhere in the recipe, maybe Earl was hiding?
    (((HUGS))) Susanne :)

  4. That looks good I never would have thought of it. Yummy!

  5. Oooh....these look wonderful! And I can only imagine how fabulous they taste wrapped in bacon!

  6. Say What!!!! I am loving this idea.

  7. These look like they would be a big hit with the youngsters! Did you try them? How do they hold up? I sound like a police officer! Ha!!


  8. What a neat little surprise of macaroni and cheese inside the jalapeño. It sounds like a perfect flavor combo.

  9. bacon? :) These were caught my eye too when I saw them on Jenna's grill. It was grilling weather here this past weekend. I just looked at the weather in Philly and winced when I saw there was more snow in the forecast for you :( Mother Nature has not been kind.

  10. I have put jalapenos in mac & cheese before but never mac & cheese in jalapenos! A little bacon would be a very good thing! :)

  11. Yum. That's a snack that wouldn't last long around here.

  12. What a lovely idea. I love jalapeños and I love mac n cheese. The two together? Heaven!

  13. Oh gosh! I bet the flavor a are terrific together. The bread crumbs are a great addition.

  14. Ha! I am beyond flattered, but hey, it's embarrassing that you had no bacon!! :) So glad you enjoyed!! I hope you can grill soon, I cringed this morn when the weather talk was of yet another polar vortex!

  15. This would make an interesting appetizer, Lynn. I love mac and cheese!

  16. Mmm....Mac and Cheese. I think I could eat Mac and Cheese stuffed in just about anything! As for grilling...we have another snow storm on the way. We finally could see the grill, but with temps in the single digits and more snow...who knows when we will use it!

  17. Oh my goodness Lynn,
    I can't wait to try these awesome peppers! Thank you so much for sharing your awesome post with Full Plate Thursday and have a great weekend.
    Come Back Soon!
